Thanks for the query.

Pain under the belly button could mean a lot of things, like a simple muscle pull, cramps, pain due to conditions like appendicitis, cholecystitis, any abdominal organ/wall pathology.

As TYLENOL has given relief, I suggest you wait for a while, if it is muscle pull it will subside, if not , you may need an abdominal examination with scan and an examination from your Gynecologist.

Presence of fever, body ache, discharge which is foul smelling or unusual in type from vagina, burning sensation on urination could mean an infection. In such a case you may need a course of antibiotics .

Do not take any medicines on your own as I presume you will be feeding your child by breast, use medicines only after consulting your doctor.

You can have sex, as long as your comfortable with it and it is not causing you any pain.

Hope I answered your query, I would be available to answer the follow up queries as well.
