I have been experiencing Pre Orgasmic headaches or Coital headaches and I was wondering if anyone had advice on how to deal with them. They are very painful and very inconvient.

Hey there, Kandie-

Are these headaches that can be relieved by having an orgasm? If so, well, that's one thing I'd recommend (hardly a chore!).

Another thing you could try is simply taking an OTC headache reliever or some ibuprofen.

No they get worse if I let myself orgasm it's extremely painful, I have tryed ibuprofen it doesn't work. I had a CT scan and a spinal tap aswell and it showed nothing. I know it's directly linked to sex.. because they headaches come right before you have the BIG O and WORSE AFTER.

And you are having severe headaches? You need to get in touch with your doctor as soon as possible then. If you can't get in touch with your doctor, then you need to get immediate attention from your local emergency medical department. I would hope that the doctor who performed the spinal tap had given you information on what to do if you experience something like headaches. But that's an issue to bring up later; right now, you need to get seen by a doctor.

They are severe, the worse I have ever had in my life. The Spinal Tap showed no serious problems no free fluid around my brain or anything like that and I do have to see a neuroligist at the end of the month, but one doctor had said it could be pre orgasmic and that I shouldn't have sex which is well awful. Thats why I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and could maybe shed a little light on to how they cope with it. [Smile]

By sending you to a neurologist they’re making sure that A - there’s not another environmental cause that’s triggering them, and B – the headaches are your typical run of the mill headaches.

What you may find is that rather than just being classed as coital headaches, there could be a diagnosis of coital migraines – where the migraine is the problem and sex is actually acting as a trigger. Some people find that different positions or types of sex bring about the headaches more often than others or to a worse degree. Additionally taking an over the counter pain medication a few hours before sex can prevent the onset of the headaches in some people. Migraine sufferers however usually take their migraine medication a few hours before. If orgasm makes them so much worse, having sex without orgasm may also be an option.

If the headache has already begun, the treatment is usually just like that for any other headache - over the counter medications, cold compresses, and lying in a quiet dark room can help the headache to ease. The best person for you to ask about this is your doctor. I’m sure he/she will understand that not having sex may not be an option you may wish to take and could possibly pose some other ideas as to prevention and care – but the doctor may also say that until you meet with the neurologist they feel it’s best to hold off on sex, and if after speaking with them that’s the case there’s probably a reason. Why not give your doctor a call and see what they think.
