Answer to your Health Question

Question: A friend of mine is concerned that his girlfriend faints after orgasm. Apparently she can hear but cannot speak or move. He asked if I had heard about this from any of my friends but I hadn't. Do you know anything about this? Jan

Answer: Dear Jan,

In very extreme cases, some people can faint after orgasm due to the fact that when sexually aroused a person's breath shortens and quickens. When breath becomes very fast it can cause dizziness and lightheadedness resulting in fainting.
