Two new cases of severe headache during orgasm teens puzzle scientists.
Sensations of 16-year-old boy and 18-year-old shed new light on the bizarre, though not life-threatening phenomenon, report “Discovery News” and “Live Science”.
Scientists hope to understand more about this rare (at least formally statistically) problem, but have a suspicion that it may be more widespread than is known.
Only in the U.S. at least 1% of Americans have experienced as a nasty headache and painful symptom during sex – ie primary sexual headache.
Sex and Stress
About 50% of them suffer from migraine. However, these cases remain a mystery for now.
In one gradually increasing pain during intimacy and the other is like “an explosion” during orgasm. Scientists are likely in progressive headache to mention shortening the muscles during sexual activity.
As for the sudden, they are offered as an explanation of the particular sensitivity of blood vessels in the brain to the intimate activities.
The two cases with teenagers, described this week in the Journal of Pediatrics (Pediatrics) are exactly those two types.
The girl who never before had headaches started to experience mild to moderately severe throbbing pain in front of the head.

During orgasm, it is intensified to the girl developed severe photophobia (fear and sensitivity to light) phonofobiya (of sounds) and sensitivity to movement.
The boy had trial of the explosive type of headache just at the moment of orgasm. It identified the pain as 8-grade from 10-level scale, it was marked by a throbbing sensation and tear.
The pain appeared five to 10 seconds before orgasm and ended between 10 seconds to two minutes after that.
Boy experience these headaches regardless of sexual attitude and how to achieve orgasm (including masturbation). In its primary type headaches stopped after a few months.
When the girl did symptoms appeared almost immediately after birth control changed, although scientists are not sure that there is correlation between two things. When she returned the old pills, the pain died down after about two weeks.
Brain scan revealed no abnormalities in teenagers rejects the possibility that symptoms are related to other causes, such as aneurysm, which make them lethal.
As previously known only four cases described, incl. new, scientists are not sure whether these headaches occur more often in teenagers or adults.
They even admitted that young people can share less any strange sexual problems faced by doctors uncomfortable.
Health and libido
It is known that problems persist for several months to years. Meanwhile, they can be prevented with medications such as ibuprofen, taken about 30 minutes before sex.
Scientists hope that doctors will ask themselves whether teenagers have similar symptoms and so will give publicity to the problem which still awaits its explanation.
