Study Shows That Sex Relieves Headache Pain
“Not tonight, I’ve got a headache”. Throw that excuse out the window. Headache and migraine suffers may be happy to learn that pain relief can achieved through sexual activity. Neurologists report that “partial to complete relief” can result from sexual activity.
The study comes from the University of Munster, Germany and suggests that rather than using your headache as an excuse to not have relations, making love can be more effective than painkillers. The research is reported in the journal of the International Headache Society. Remarkably, more than half of migraine suffers in the study who had intercourse during an episode, reported an improvement in symptoms.
Many studies have been conducted around this subject. The good news is you can conduct your own study at home.
