I've experienced that. Having sex increases your body's adrenaline and dopamine and causes a drop in serotonin temporarily. Sometimes this can cause panic attacks afterward.

Like everything else when it comes to panic problems, learning how to take deep breaths and control your anxiety helps tremendously in heading off an attack.

Hi Angest,
 
I had this problem some time back but mine was more to do with suffering flashbacks from my abusive childhood.  I found my relationship very difficult for a while but I am doing much better now.
 
If this continues, maybe talk to your doctor and they can arrange some counselling with people who specifically deal with this topic.  This kind of therapy can be very useful.
 
Take care

breath holding or altered brreathing during could bring on a panic attack
remember to breathe deep and slow
