Hello battleformation
Welcome to HCM

Coital cephalgia or Sexual Headache is a rare condition which is seen in some individuals in their young years. It is a sharp headache and pain behind eyes during sexual activity and just before exertion. Increased pressure in head may be thought to be a underlying mechanism. Although its not described commonly in literature still its common in some people.
Best preventive measure is to change the position of sexual activity, one has to avoid kneeling position or any position which result in increased blood supply to head.
Reduction of sexual activity for some time will also help.
Management of pain with medicines like B-blockers as Propranolol will help. Only 10-20 mg doses will help.
Other analgesics like common NSAID drugs Aspirin, Indomethacin will help.
flupitrine is also useful in such type of headache.

If headache is persistent get you MR scan done to rule out any anatomical abnormality.

Hope I cleared your doubt.
Take Care
