Question: When I have an orgasm during sex I get horrible pains in my head like it is going to explode. Started within last couple weeks. What could be causing this? Debbie

Answer: Dear Debbie,

An orgasm can trigger a headache. They are thought to be caused by the tightening of the head and neck muscles during sexual activity. Increased blood pressure during an orgasm can also result in a headache.
