Well it’s true sex headaches exist and it’s not the old saying of “honey, not tonight, I’ve got a headache”.
Sex headaches can be completely debilitating and there are 2 types of sex headaches. It can start as a dull ache in the head and neck which can intensify as sexual excitement increases. Or it can be a sudden severe throbbing headache that occurs just before or at orgasm. Unfortunately, sometimes both types can occur at once. These headaches can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours and in extreme cases several days.
This would be enough to put anyone off having sex!
What Can You Do About it?
If this is occurring the first thing to do is to see a doctor so they can run tests to ensure that there is no bleeding from the brain or any other problems with the vessels in the brain.
Other contributing causes can be glaucoma, strokes, coronary arterial dysfunction and sinus infections.
Other side symptoms can be vomiting, visual and sensory loss and motor disturbances.
What Things Put You at Potential Risk?
Some of the risk factors can be obesity, stress, migraine history, history of arterial disease, marijuana, amyl nitrate and some other drugs can contribute as well as obesity.
What can be done?
How can you treat these awful sex headaches. Well conventional medicine will give you a range of medications which may or may not help.
When I’ve been presented with this problem, I look at the person’s history, when it started to see if there are emotional patterns that are contributing as well as any history of surgeries, injuries or falls and what condition the neck and tail bone are in. There could potentially be internal adhesions which can travel from the site of injury through layers of muscle and tissues and can attach to ligaments, joints, fascia and tendons. These can create all sorts of issues within the body and could be a contributing factor.
How do they express their orgasm?
I would also want to know the sexual and orgasmic history. Most people, when they orgasm, clench their jaw, hold their breath and tighten their body. I would look at teaching how to connect more into the sexual energy using breath and movement to allow the body to open more rather than contract, which will allow the blood to flow through the body as well as allowing the sexual energy to flow more.
Get in The Body and not the Head
When you learn to connect into your body more, you become more present and aware which can help you to see how you are blocking the flow of energy and this will reduce the “sex headaches” and alleviate them all together.
