    2 of the last 3 times my wife and I have had sex, at the moment of my orgasm, I get a headache. Not like a 2 Tylenol deal, but fall in the floor migraine. Scared the crap out of us

    I, of course, googled it and found its not that uncommon in men. Anyone have any real life issues with it? Next one and I will head to the doc. Actually sorta scared to cum again

    Yikes....guess you've been edging a lot.

    Are you hydrated? Sounds scary, I'd talk to the doc about it anyway.

    Might be a good time for a checkup. Arousal and orgasm divert blood flow to the genitals and loins. But you should still be getting enough flow to the brain. During orgasm blood vessels constrict. That means less blood in the brain and less oxygen. The headache is the result. A doctor might want to make sure that you don't have any signs of vascular disease that could result in a stroke.

    I have heard of this happening due to the intensity of an orgasm but what you are describing sounds more serious than that.. You should get it checked out...its terrible that you are afraid to have an orgasm :-(

    Thinking it was a fluke thing. Sex a few times since then, and no headache. Got a physical coming up, will ask about it then. Was sorta scary for a bit

    I have had these before and they should pass with no problems but if they persist then go to a doctor.

    It only happened 3 of 4 times to me but at one point it got so painful we had to stop what we were doing that night. I know it's annoying stopping that close to orgasm but just say so to your partner and they hopefully will understand.

    Also try to keep hydrated and cut out the fags and drink. If you drink and smoke that is.:)
