What causes severe headache during intercourse?
Can be due to Increased Intra Cranial Tension
Welcome to HealthCareMagic.com I am Dr.J XXXXXXX Anto Bruno Mascarenhas, and I am here to help you. I have read your question with care and understand your concerns.
There are few early warning signs of increased intracranial tension (pressure inside the skull). These are
1. Headache while coughing
2. Headache while sneezing
3. Headache while passing motion
4. Headache while lifting weights
5. Headache when having sex
Headache during sex can be due to so many reasons like migraine
Since Raised Intra Cranial Tension needs immediately medical attention,
You have to undergo
1. Clinical Examination
2. Fundus Examination
3. MRI Brain
If these are normal, we can be assured that this is a trivial cause of headache and manage accordingly
I suggest you consult your Neurosurgeon and get evaluated for Increased ICP (intra cranial pressure)
Hope you found the answer helpful.
If you need any clarification / have doubts / have additional questions / have follow up questions, then please do not hesitate in asking again. I will be happy to answer your questions.
Best Wishes for Speedy Recovery
