Stomach crunches, muscle twitching in abdomen, had protected anal sex. Causes for abdominal pain and treatment?

About 3 weeks ago I did some stomach crunches one night. It was the first time I had done stomach crunches in many months, and even then, it has been years since I have exercised on a consisten basis. I remembe being sore the days after, but since then, I have been getting some muscle twitching in my lower abdomen , mainly on the left side, although the whole area, left to right seems a little tight. Did I pull a muscle or strain? However, I tried protected anal sex about 2 weeks prior to those stomach crunches. Could the abdomen pain be related to that? It was my first time.

Thanks for writing in.
I think you probably pulled a muscle during the crunches. Its unlikely that the protected anal intercourse caused any of these symptoms. When you start with an exercise, please make sure you maintain a proper posture. Do not do more than 6-8 repetitions in one go.
At this point, the pain can be relieved by using diclofenac gel and hot fomentation ( in the form of hot water bottle or electric heating pad). This should make the pain much better.
Hope this helps
