Has anyone ever experienced a "thunderclap" headache right at the time of orgasm?   I've had this happen a couple of times, and it happens almost spontaneously.

The headache is excrutiating (spelling?).  I ended up having a migrane for a few days afterwards as well.

I didn't mess around, I went to the doctor, they did a MRI and found nothing.  I was told this happens sometimes for no apparent reason or cause.

Just curious if I was alone in this.....

Honey, I really DO have a headache [}:)]

I know that when I have many orgasms, I have a headache for the rest of the day.

I am sometimes very emotional and will cry. That is rather upsetting to some men. [:0]

This is fascinating..really !...I do hope we get some good explanations....I wonder if it's a blood pressure thing with regard to the headaches.

The emotional side of things I can relate to, with such a release that an orgasm is I can understand the emotional release...perhaps down to endorphins and hormones being increased in production.

I was thinking maybe it had something to do with dehydration, but that would probably make the headache occur gradually during sex, instead of very quickly during the orgasm.  How long do you orgasm?

Ive heard of a headache prior to intercourse, followed by a cigarette. I have also known of a lady who liked a willy in her ear, every time my friend went to put it in her mouth she turned her head to the side [:D][:o)]

No, Andrew it should have been [:0]. [:D]

To answer a question, this headache came on exactly at the time the orgasm began, and it didn't quit (I'm talking the headache now [;)]) for a good hour, though I had a severe headache for about 4 days (the migrane type).  It truly was the worst headache I've ever had.  It felt just like the name "thunderclap".  The orgasm ended fairly abruptly as my head hurt to badly.  I remember grabbing my head with both hands and thinking "Oh my God, I'm having an aneurysm, not that I know what an aneurysm feels like.  The pain went down the back of my head almost to my neck.

Love your comments & feedback [8D]

Cruzin, would you be holding your breath during the build up and then suddenly release a huge outflow from your lungs at the point of climax? If so this could answer your problem with the sudden headache, as releasing your breath suddenly can indeed alter the internal pressures inside the arteries and veins. A good example of this is a boxer breathing out sharply to increase the power of his punches. I can explain in more detail what is happening if this fits with your experience of headache.

Andrew:  You know, I can't remember if I was holding my breath or not.  Good question, and it does make sense.....I know one time I was on my back and it very well could be possible I wasn't breathing.  The other time I was on my knees (too much info??) and I don't think I was holding my breath, but truthfully I don't 100% remember as I was concentrating on other things.

I just remember the headache came on SO quickly, not gradually like other headaches, it happened in a split second.

I wish I could answer the part about the breathing, butI will tell you this, I will make sure I breath from now on.....just in case this is the cause.  I don't ever want to have another one.

I know what you mean about scary, they hurt like hell.  My Doctor assured me there was nothing to worry about, but I had them do an MRI anyway.  They haven't happenened in the last couple of months, but I think they will happen every time.

It's not real good for the sex drive....

Laurie...please keep us updated...I'm keeping a diary of your orgasms here !

Seriously though, It must be extremely debilitating....If it happens again, I would most certainly go back to the doctor and get a referal as it most certainly would effect your sex life and that would overflow into your regular life too and poor hubby would be upset...as well as you too of course.....but, don't give up on the doctors, get hubby to come with you (pun intended...oh dear !!)...just you both get down there and insist something be done because it's affecting your lives/relationships......it's amazing what doctors will do if you complain enough.........

same applies to you wallflower....don't give up on getting it sorted.

I haven't had a thunderclap headache since July.  The doctor had originally put me on a beta blocker, but to be frank it was just another pill I didn't want to become dependent upon.  Plus, everything I had read on the internet led me to believe this could disappear and then reappear in 10 years, or maybe never.  

I definitely don't want it to interfer with my sex life [;)]

I know exactly what you mean about this headache, I was on here (internet) right now, trying to find out about this phenomena.  It worried me so, the pain for me was so bad I too held my head but it does not last for days, only right when I have the "big O" then goes away in about 5 minutes.  It comes on right at the the point of impact, and hurts so f*&^ing bad!

The power of the event can seam to increased by voluntary and involuntary body tension build up. Cramps and headaches can easily follow the release. I suggest you try changing you position and keep aware of what else is tense besides the obvious. It can be very pleasurable to relax as much as possible during sex as a way to explore the act. Try to concrete on your breathing. Most of all have fun!

man, I leave for a little while and women start describing their orgasms on here.  i like this science!!!  guess i should check in more often.  [;)]

in all seriousness though.  I do find this quite intriuging.  (probably because of my dirty mind, but I do find it interesting none the less).  I've gathered from what I've read that everyone experiencing this phenomenon is female??  Am I incorrect about that?  Are there any males experiencing the same that I missed?  I think the differences between male and female orgasms are fascinating!

can anyone who hqas experienced this try to describe your headache in a bit more detail. Especially WHERE in your head the pain seemed to be centered?

No headache, just ysually get VERY sleepy. Perhaps in women the reactionis the headache. Or maybe there is a connection?

I heard when we have orgasms are hearts suddenly beat a lot faster that extra pumping promotes  the release of waste products into our blood which can cause us to feel unwell. Not sure if its true or not maybe a doctor on the forum will respond.

I also heard that when we orgasm are bodies release endorphins which in men cause us to feel sleepy. Maybe a long time ago when we were cavemen and women it was natures way to let the females of the specie escape from our clutches [:D]

In reguards to:

can anyone who hqas experienced this try to describe your headache in a bit more detail. Especially WHERE in your head the pain seemed to be centered?

The pain is like my head is exploding hurts all over! It hurts a lot on the sides, I hold both sides of my head and apply pressure it subsides soon, but for a minute or two very intense pain. This happens infrequent, but when it does you don't want to experience it again!  I know this sounds weird but it is like a my brain is having an orgasm too! I am not holding my breath or doing anything different from other times that it doesn't happen.[:0]

Dr Zagami: Well, there are several types of headaches that can be related to exertion occurring during sex - one is: a type of headache that occurs as the person's sexual activity increases and usually occurs before orgasm and it's related to increasing muscle tension. So it's a muscle contraction headache. This can sometimes be followed by another form of headache, or this other form of headache may occur independently and that's an explosive onset of a throbbing headache that usually occurs at the time of orgasm. And we think that that is related to the benign exertion headache. So, more recently people have described patients who have both forms of headache, occurring either at separate times in their lives, or in close together. And thinking about why those type of headache might occur, both during exertion - there are changes that occur as well as during sex where you have changes in terms of increases in blood pressure, which can actually be quite massive. So, weight lifters can put their blood pressures up by 40 to 100 mm of mercury, and similar changes in blood pressure can occur during orgasm. So, somehow those changes in blood pressure and the accompanying changes in blood vessels seem to predispose to these type of headaches.

'Life is like a box of chocolates...You never know what you're gonna get...'

And whats that got to do with sex i hear you ask, and the answer is absolutely nothing.

I just felt like saying it[:D] (wicked film though )

I think the reason why sex gets better the older you get is because.

The older people get the longer they tend to stay with there partners , their not changing them each week and therefore learn more about them , likes and dislikes.

you also get less your hung up on what you look like and therefore are more open and are prepared to try new things.This with the fact that older men tend to care more about pleasing there partners all adds up to some fantastic nights of sticky seminal joy.  [:)]

Also and i can't prove this but i noticed a few years back that women's clitorises tend be larger and are more erect the older the woman gets. Well that's my view , ooh i love that view[:D]

Men are the same as women, just inside out !



Received this email today and it automatically made me think of this post.


The year is 2222 and Mike and Maureen land on Mars after accumulating
enough frequent flier miles.  They meet a Martian couple and are talking about all  sorts of things. Mike asks if Mars has a stock market, if they have laptop computers, how they make money, etc.  Finally, Maureen brings up the subject of sex.
"Just how do you guys do it?" asks Maureen. "Pretty much the way
you do," responds the Martian.  Discussion ensues and finally the couples decide to swap partners for the night and experience one another. Maureen and the male Martian go off to a bedroom where the Martian strips.  He's got only a teeny, weeny ***** - about half an inch long and just a quarter inch thick.  "I don't think this is going to work," says Maureen.  "Why?" he asks, "What's the matter?"
"Well," she replies, "It's just not long enough to reach me!"
"No problem," he says, and proceeds to slap his forehead with
his palm.  With each slap of his forehead, his ***** grows until
it's quite impressively long. "Well," she says, "That's quite impressive, but it's still pretty narrow...."  "No problem,"  he says, and starts pulling his ears.
With each pull, his ***** grows wider and wider until the entire
measurement is extremely exciting to the woman.
"Wow!" she exclaims, as they fell into bed and made mad, passionate love.  The next day the couples rejoin their normal partners and go
their separate ways.  As they walk along, Mike asks "Well, was it any  good?"  "I hate to say it," says Maureen, "but it was pretty wonderful.  How about you?"  "It was horrible," he replies, All I got was a headache.  All she kept doing the whole time was slapping my forehead and pulling my ears."
[:D]

Have you ever had a Thunderclap Headache During Orgasm?

John O'Riley was a member of an Irish Toast Masters' Club.  
One evening at the local Irish Toast Masters meeting, a contest was held to
see who could deliver the best toast.  Well, John O'Riley won the contest
with the following verse:
            "Here's to the best years o' me life, spent between the legs o'
me wife."
            When John O'Riley arrived home, his beautiful wife asked him how
the Toast Masters' meeting went and he said, "I won the contest for the best
toast of the evening."
            His wife then asked him what his toast was, and he said "Here's
to the best years o' me life, spent in Church wi' me wife."
            His wife then said, "Why John, that's so nice of you to include
me in your toast."
            The next morning, Mrs. O'Riley was downtown shopping and ran
into the local policeman on the beat who had also been at the Toast Masters
meeting with her husband. He said, "Hello Mrs. O'Riley, that was some great
toast that your husband John gave at the Toast Masters meeting last evening.
  He won first prize."
            "Yes, that's what he told me," said Mrs. O'Riley, "but he wasn't
quite honest with the facts:  he's only been there twice, the first time he
fell asleep, and the second time I had to pull him by the ears to make him
come!"

Joy - I'm glad you're having fun.  You have alot to look forward to.  I only thought I enjoyed it in my 20's, it was even better in my 30's.  I can't wait to see how much better it is when I turn 40.  Woo Hoo only 22 more days!!

Not that it's not perfectly wonderful now, and I certainly don't mean to sound impatient but, I'm just wondering how long after I turn 40 does it get better?  Is it immediate?  Does it take a day or so, or even months?  Hubby is younger by 4 months.  I wonder if it only gets better when both parties are 40.  Hmmm.  This is on my mind entirely too much, I think I need a hobby.

Hey Carolyn, I'm 42 (for another month!) and if you would like to test your hypothesis about both parties being over 40 without waiting for your hubby, I'd be glad to help.  [}:)]  That way you will have some advance knowledge for him when his big day comes along!

[:0]Wow!! What a generous offer, it's nice to know there are people out there willing to offer themselves so unselfishly for such serious experimentation.[;)]  Somehow, I just don't think hubby would appreciate my 'advanced knowledge' in this area, and I would like to keep him.  After 19 years I almost have him trained the way I want him[:D]

There are two kinds of sudden severe headache that are very similar. One is the orgasmic headache and the other is the exercise provoked headache. There is debate on whether the basic mechanism is neurogenic or vasogenic. I think that it incorporates both neurogenic triggering and then secondary vascular dilatation.

These tend to be repetitive and benign. So if one has had seven or eight orgasmic and/or exercise headache it is unlikely something more threatening. That threat is the sentinel bleed, a small haemorrhage due to leakage from an aneurysm or Arteriovenous Malformation. The dilemma is what to do when it is the first time for the headache. Dr. Neil Raskin of UCSF in San Francisco is a world expert on Migraine and Headaches in general. He once told me at a meeting that the first time orgasm or exercise headache must be evaluated (Magnetic Resonance Angiography, catheter Angiography, or spiral CT scan.) The odds are not high but the incidence of aneurysms is quite high in autopsied patients.

If one has several such headaches it is most likely the strange orgasm or exertional headache. There seems to be some prostaglandin mechanism but the trigger maybe related to some sudden flux of noradrenalin and/or Dopamine. But all of these headaches are classified by Dr. Raskin as "Indomethacin responsive headaches."

They are well treated by the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, Indomethacin 25 to 50 mg. It works best when taken prophylactically. If you plan a run around the lake then take Indomethacin 30 minutes to an hour before the run. Or take the Indomethacin an hour before anticipated shagging. Why Indomethacin works is still debated but not the fact that it does work. It is not likely an anti-inflammatory mechanism but suspected to be a prostaglandin mechanism of the Indomethacin.

Disclaimer: I would suggest anyone with this kind of headache to confer with his/her doctor before starting Indomethacin because of potential side effects, and be sure that you may not need neuroimaging to rule out an aneurysm. Family history of ruptured intracranial aneurysms would make me advise neuroimaging.

Hey My husband has experienced these so called thunderclap headaches, not every time but once in a while. I often wondered if it was because his blood pressure may have been particularly high on those occasions. He has just found out he has a touch of high blood pressure. HMMMM! I wonder if that could explain them at all.

I just experienced this particular breed of headache for the first time ever a couple days ago, and it scared the bajeezus out of me. I was thinking "Aneurysm!" too, especially since I have a friend who survived one, and the pain/throbbing sounded a lot like what she described. I was doing what I've done for over twenty years, and it surprised me that I'd have a problem now.

I've tried a few times since then, with the same result all but once. I found greater success by slowing down and monitoring my breathing, being sure not to hold my breath. So, I may not be able to have a quickie ever again, unless this goes away in time. My partner suggested it might be stress related, as I've been through a lot of changes since the first of the year (starting and stopping school, major schedule changes at work, and starting to write a very personal and emotionally challenging book).

Normally, when you go to the doctor and say "It hurts when I do this..." they say "Well, stop doing that." But I don't think anyone here is willing to give up on orgasms without a fight, right?

To that end, I did a bit of digging on google, and came up with the following link:

http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/1439.html

Check out the 2nd question and scroll down for the answer. Pay attention to the other symptoms that can be warning signs of something serious. But it sounds fairly benign, and treatable with anti-migraine medication. Quoted here:

---Another way of classifying sexual headaches is the method that J. Nick, Ph.D. and P. Bakouche, Ph.D. devised. They separated coital headaches into 3 individual categories, split according to time of appearance of pain during sex:

1. early headache, which is usually moderate and short lasting;
2. orgasmic headache, described by a sudden severe burst lasting 15 to 20 minutes;
3. late headache, lasting for hours or days. These sometimes follow orgasmic headaches.


If you experience any other unusual symptoms, such as a stiff neck, see a health care provider for a check-up to rule out more serious disorders. These ailments may manifest themselves as a stroke, brain tumor, or bleeding in or around the brain.

If your health care provider determines that your headache is just a headache, then you may want to take an anti-migraine medication or beta-blocker that constricts blood vessels. If prescribed such a medication, taking one before having sex could help to prevent sexual headaches.---


I had Number 2 on that list, and it did dissipate within 5-10 minutes after it began and I stopped playing, but it took much longer to leave than it did to arrive. My thought is to take it easy, and go slow/breathe evenly, and see if that does the trick, so to speak. I'll see a doctor if that isn't satisfactory.

Anyway, I hope this helps to ease everyone's anxiety. I was grateful to read that it's more than likely not serious.
