Occasionally during lovemaking I get an excruciating headache at orgasm. What causes this? It lasts for a little while afterwards also.

There is mixed information available about the cause of these headaches during orgasm; some believe it is due to the increased blood flow & pressure caused by the exertion and excitement as you move towards climax, some believe it is due tension in the neck muscles. As long as it is only in these circumstances, you are not likely to be suffering from some other physical problem that needs to be addressed, and the headaches should dissipate in time. Some advise that you slow down your excitement phase during intercourse; you could try less demanding positions; and also, if severe, speak to your doctor about the possibility of some medication which might be able to assist.
