What's Up With Sex Headaches?

What's Up With Sex Headaches?

Saying you have a headache is a poor excuse for not wanting to have sex, since getting it on is a great way to cure your pain. But what about saying you don't want to have sex because you're worried about getting a headache?

I know this sounds weird, but it's true. For some people, engaging in sexual activity can cause either a painful throbbing sensation or a dull ache in your neck or head. It's called a sex headache. It can happen before an orgasm, after one, or even during one. We're talking any kind of sexual activity, even masturbation. One in 100 people will experience a sex headache in their lifetimes, although men are three times more likely to get them than women. I'm sure they're uncomfortable, but are they something you should worry about? To find out

To answer this question, let's first talk about what causes them. Tensing your neck and shoulders might trigger one, but they can also be caused by an abrupt rise in blood pressure. Other causes may include taking birth control pills, smoking marijuana, or having glaucoma, anemia, a sinus infection, or low blood sugar. Most sex headaches shouldn't be cause for alarm, but it is possible that they could be a sign of a more serious condition, so if you get them often or if they're affecting your sex life, I'd definitely make an appointment to see your doctor.
