    I looked it up, Coital headaches... supposedly there's a ratio for men who have it, 4:1.. don't know if that's true.. I've never heard of it before.

    To answer your question. Yes, I do get them near the end, sometimes after, my workouts.. they aren't nearly as bad, though.

    And no, no poppers. I've never used them and don't plan on it.

    Yes I used to get this either just before orgasm or just after. It was very uncomfortable and at times scary (although it did not last for hours). And guess what? I had high blood pressure, and I think that might have been a warning sign. Although you are young, your blood pressure may be elevated. Have a doctor check it out sometime just to be safe.

    After I lost weight and my doctor put me on "altace" a blood pressure pill, my blood pressure went to normal (120/72) and the headaches went away.

    First off, see an MD. They can screen if anything physically is wrong with your bod. However, I am curious to know when it all started happening. Is this the first time it happened to you? Was anything out of the ordinary when you masturbated this last time and got the headache? What was happening elsewhere in your life? heart? relationships? Just trying to help you figure out if it is simply a blood pressure issue or something else going on. Be gentle with yourself.

    I've had that happen a few times, actually. It turned out for me it was dehydration. Blood flow was reaching to lower places and because it was thicker, it was harder to pump oxygen to my brain. It would last for a while afterwards (whether I stopped or not) and eventually go away when I had some water and advil.

    If you're anything like me and dont drink near enough water, that's what I'd guess is happening.

    One time I had a headache so bad I had to stop and lay down and sleep it off. I teared up from the pain.

    Funny ... I've always found the opposite icon_wink.gif

    But really it has to do usually with increases in Blood Pressure and sometimes to rushes of certain hormones that regulate it

    But if this happens all the time and it's enough to make you really take notice it's best to tell your Doc
    Your BP might be spiking and that's a cause for alarm

    Like everyone elses suggestion see a doc. It can be blood pressure related, prescription medicine related, or even a constriction in blood flow somewhere. The big quesiton like mentioned befor is if this happens also doing strennuous cardio workout.

    good advice and suggestions can be found here

    See a doctor, have your blood pressure checked, have your meds reviewed. Headaches from any kind of normal sex, including masturbation, are not normal. The so-called coital headache is exceptional, and can be an indicator of a health problem.

    Do you also have it when doing any other strenuous activity? Like cardio or something?

    I had this happen to me once a while back. The headache would not go away after a few days, so I went to the doctor. It ended up being a sinus infection!

    I get them now and then... Migraines when appoarching or during or after orgasm.


    HORRIBLE pain.

    I've had two periods when this has happened. I couldn't jack off for a week... everytime i tried, i'd get a migriane.

    Those "periods" go away on their own. From the credable sites I went to... it seems they are more common with 20-30 year olds. Males and females get them and doctors do not know why yet.

    Sex headache or post coital headache is felt to be a migraine variant. The headache can be prevented or treated with migraine medications. Rarely the headache may not be benign, but due to something serious like a cerebral aneurysm. A physician should always evaluate the headache to rule out a serious problem. The physician may order an MRI or other studies.

    Masturbation makes you feel headache. Masturbate also makes your brain become dull. I suggest you to drink 2 cups of green tea after masturbate. Green tea will remove the headache. The headache cause by masturbation is different from the usual headache that you got when you have fever. After masturbate, the headache felt inside the skull. I found that green tea to cure the headache by coincidence. I have suffered from masturbation headache more than a decade. Here is my story how I meet the green tea. One day I went to other country as a tourist and stayed in a 5 stars hotel. It was the first time I stayed in a 5 stars hotel. In the hotel I found green tea. I am not familiar with its taste. After going home from holiday I bought the same green tea. I masturbate as usual many times in a week and I drank the tea. After drinking I found that my headache diminished with one cup and vanish after the second cup. I was a bit surprised. First I thought it was coincidence but every time I drink the green tea after masturbate I found that my headache diminished or prevented before it obviously felt.

    Here I give you the link about the green tea that I usually drink. It is Japanese OSK green tea. I recommend you to drink high quality Japanese green tea like this one because I am not sure about other low grade green tea. I masturbate thousands times from my childhood and I have suffered from headache more than 10 year before I found green tea. Thank to god who makes me meet the green tea by coincidence.

    Believe my story. Try the green tea if you feel headache, tiredness, dreamless sleep, dehydration-like fatigue (actually it is not dehydration but you might feel like dehydrated after masturbate for a long period of time e.g. after months or years, even if drink many cups of plain water won’t cure). Green tea helps the above problems but it does not cure erectile dysfunction.
    Tips for preparing the OSK green tea to maximize its benefits.
    (1) Boil the tap water
    (2) Put the tea bag inside the cup (a cup which is medium or big size)
    (3) Pour the hot water into the cup. It is better that the hot water hit tea bag while you pour it.
    (4) Use a spoon. Stir it left to right or right to left. Left to right and back to left is counted as one time. After that from left again move to right and move back to left is counted as 2 times. Stir at least 160 times or more or 200 times until it is deep green.
    (5) Drink it while it is still hot or warm. Finish it while it is still warm. After masturbate I don’t recommend you to drink it if it is already cool.
    (6) Make the second cup and prepare it as instructed above and drink it while it is still hot or warm.
    The link below is not my blog. It shows the picture of the OSK green tea

    Hasn't happened to me yet. Most times orgasms make headaches go away, unless it's a migraine coming on, the orgasm does nothing to help it! (Though I always have to try it first!!)

    Like the others said check with a doctor just in case. My BP is pretty much always on the lower side, so can't comment on that aspect either.
