For many sufferers, asking this is too much…unless you want stomach contents spewed out on the bed. Sorry for the visual. But for some sufferers or some headaches, it might be worth a try. Endorphins are hormones with pain-killing effects that flood your body with vigorous exercise or even sexual encounters.
There are other benefits, too. An active, healthy sex life, for many, suggests a healthy overall lifestyle with plenty of sleep, good nutrition, and good stress-reducing techniques -- all things that are great for headache sufferers.
There are some headaches that can be triggered by intimate encounters, though. If you get one of those, you probably need to see your doctor and discuss this symptom with him or her.
