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?

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?
