For most people, pleasure is perhaps the only thing on their mind when their sexual arousal heats up. However, for some people the pain literally interrupts the party, because at least 1% of adults today experience coital cephalalgia, or “sex headaches”, or head pain that occurs before, during or after orgasm! Here’s what you need to know about this medical condition, which is the unpleasant epitome of a buzzkill.
The Three Kinds of Sex Headaches
Have you and your hookup mates, or even your preferred Tasmania Escorts, ever experience having a headache in between your erotic adventures? I hope none of you are victims of sex headaches, for these types of conditions are literally a mood killer!
According to the Mayo clinic in the US, there are three kinds of sex headaches, the first of which is a dull ache in the head and neck that intensifies as the sexual excitement increases. The second is a sudden, severe and throbbing headache that occurs just before or at the moment of orgasm. The third type manifests as a headache which occurs after sex, and can range from mild to extremely painful. This type of headache gets worse when the person stands, and lessens when the person lies back down!
Sex Headaches Can Occur in Clusters, or Out of the Blue
The experts at the Mayo clinic also stressed that sex headaches can occur in clusters, or they can happen out of the blue. In fact, some people may have to deal with them often, while for others they only happen once in a lifetime!
However, the vast majority of sex headaches associated with sexual activity are benign, but in a small percentage of these cases, the headaches can be due to a serious underlying medical condition, such as a brain aneurysm, stroke, cervical artery dissection, hemorrhage or subdural hematoma.
But no matter what, the health experts say that anyone who gets sex headaches should see their doctor quickly, even though they are often benign. And I do hope that you and your hookup mates, as well as your favourite Tasmania Escorts, never get a headache during your erotic adventures!
