I have been having very BAD headaches, about a week ago. Just before I'm about to ejaculate when masterbating, i get this INTENSE headache that beats with the heartbeat of my heart. It's like all over in my head, not a specific place. It hurts SO BAD that I never dare to masterbate again.. I haven't touched my willy in a week because of this. This have happened 2 times. 1st 2 weeks ago, and another 1-2 days after the first time. Im really scared, could you help?

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

You are describing Coital Cephalgia or Orgasm Triggered Migraine. You need a MRI scan to rule out any underlying pathology. Then there are medicines that you can take prior to sexual activity that can ward off these headaches.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
