What are these sharp stabs below my breast which radiates around my ribs ?

Hello, I m 20 years old and I m experiencing these sharp stabs below my breast (typically left breast) which radiates around my ribs. I just had sex with my boyfriend yesterday and this is the first time I ve experienced it. I was also short of breath in the process of sex. I m also anemic so I m thinking that might have an effect? Please help me.

Welcome to healthcare magic.
Pain could be due to injury to soft tissue of breast or chest muscles due to some jerky movement, probably during sex.If you have no difficulty while breathing or coughing then mostly it will resolve gradually.But if it persist or you have difficulty in breathing please consult your doctor.Anemia is not likely to affect it .
