Sex Headaches

Sex headaches do exist!!!

Have you ever experienced a sudden severe headache just before or during orgasm? Or sometimes a dull ache in your head and neck as sexual activity builds up? This is usually nothing to worry about, but can also be a sign of something serious such as a problem with the blood vessels in your brain.

Sex headaches can affect either male or female, but males are more prone to developing them.
People who have migraines are also prone to developing sex headaches.

Most sex headaches lasts for only minutes, but others may linger for a few hours and even several days.

It is recommended to consult your doctor for headaches that begin abruptly during sexual activity or if this is the first time you are experiencing a headache after sexual activity.
