    Masturbation headaches

    Hey all.

    Since I became sexually active I have occasionally engaged in intense tensing sessions when I feel like I couldn't 'get it out'. I'll tense my legs and pelvis muscles up really hard to force it. I've been doing this for a long time but recently I noticed that afterwards I'll get a bit of a headache. Nothing too painful (maybe a 4 at worst right now) but very annoying and somewhat worrying. I feel like all that pressure and exertion could pop an aneurysm in my brain or something. I had a normal CT scan 3 months ago, but that was 3 months ago. Is this a risky thing to do? Or am I just experiencing a normal coital headache?

    I asked my doctor and he said it could be from the valsalva maneuver most people do when they are having sex/masturbating, but I don't really know if that makes sense.

    I'm female but i get it too both through solo and duo sessions

    your doctor is correct it could actually be down to the valsalva maneuver could also just be a naturally occuring thing, if we think about it. with arousal all our blood rushes to our genitals, afterwards it all rushes back and that will often cause a headache.

    not heard anyone having an aneurysm as of yet and some do a heck of a lot!

    not risky, enjoy yourself(in the least wrong way possible haha)

    I had a pretty long session today and got a headache afterwards. Kinda worried even tho I got a CT scan just a few days ago after a car accident that came back normal (what if something developed delayed? D: ). Still a bit worried about an unruptured aneurysm that developed or something

    I don't think that I do the valsalva but I don't think I'm paying the most attention to my breathing

    If you get headaches when you masterbate maybe you shouldn’t masterbate.

    It's happened to me a couple of times before. I even recently randomly read that there's a medical term called "benign orgasmic headache" so it's probably not unusual and not a worry. (Although I didn't google it for more info because we all know here that Google is the devil!). If the doctor didn't care then you don't need to either.
