Two types of headaches

From a technical point of view, experts speak of two types of headaches related to sexual activity. The first appears during intercourse before reaching orgasm and manifests itself as a widespread and annoying headache, almost never so strong. Much more difficult to bear is the second form which occurs in correlation with orgasm and takes on the characteristics of a real migraine attack. In this case the pain is very strong and pulsating.

Of course, all of this is a big picture, even the pains are not all the same. For this reason the precise diagnosis must always be made by the doctor.

For the diagnosis, it is necessary to see that there are no particular alterations on the part of the brain.

The first rule would be abstinence, but in the most serious forms you must contact a specialist from a headache center, because there is the possibility of pre-treatment with specific drugs.
