Sexual headache

Posted by jmays93 @jmays93, Jan 18, 2020

This week was the first time this had happened. Right at orgasm it feels like someone is taking a sledgehammer to my head. Headache lasts several hours. I tried it again thinking it was a 1 time deal but it was not. Anyone else experience these or knows how to deal with these?

Hello @jmays93, welcome to Connect. A few members discussed experiencing a sexual headache in the past, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/sex-headache. The discussion is from 2012, but the brief exchange may share similarities to your situation. In that discussion, one member (@gmdavis63) mentions that their experience was exactly as it is described on the Mayo Clinic website (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sex-headaches/symptoms-causes/syc-20377477).

The above link does recommend speaking with a provider and explaining the experience to them in case of the rare chance it is something more urgent. @jmays93, have you mentioned this to a medical provider yet? Was the second time worse or the same as the first? It sounds as though these can come in clusters and disappear just as quickly.

I've had exactly this before and it was due to dehydration. Doctor proscribed something to help hydration in the brain, I never took it but that did give me the idea to drink a ton of fluids before masturbating or sex and that does help. I've had it a couple times since and both times when I forgot to hydrate beforehand.

Hi. Yes, that has happened to me also. Usually during sex. Water does help. Outside the norm sex.

It's tough during sex and masterbation.

Hi. Yes, absolutely. I had it while performing oral sex and it continued during intercourse. You're not alone.
