Brief Answer:
This is called intercourse related migraine

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of a possible intercourse related migraine.
This is a common problem.
I suggest trying tab indomethacin.
Take it half hour prior to planned intercourse.
And you should be fine , or not have that severe a headache.
If this doesn't help, test a CT brain with angiography.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information contained in this message will be able to help you find the best solution for your problem. Best of luck. Dr Mittal

Brief Answer:
Intercourse related migraine

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I told you it is intercourse related migraine.
unfortunately , there is no confirmed theory behind why migraine happens.
So if you thinking on the lines of cholesterol, bp, etc,,it's not because of those conditions.
I hope that helps.
Best of luck.
