A case of benign sexual headache

A case of benign sexual headache

Japanese Journal of Fertility & Sterility 36(2): 36-38

A 38 year-old-man suffered a sudden throbbing generalized headache during sexual intercourse. His lumbar puncture, CT scan of the brain, cerebral angiogram, adrenal scintigram and blood hormones were all normal. It was suggested that he was suffering from benign sexual headache. Muscle relaxant and minor tranquilizer were prescribed. At follow-up 12 months later he is doing well without severe headache and is sexually active.
