This may be a reaction related to orgasm where stimulants like dopamine are released and cause a number of effects on the body including increased rate of breathing, a fast heart rate, and possibly the shakes you are experiencing.

If they are more pronounced, lasting more than a few seconds and occur a period of time after orgasm or the end of sex then it is probably a good idea to see a doctor for further evaluation.
