Making love seems to be a therapy to treat headaches, especially headaches are intense and occur only in one part of the head or so-called migraine.

This was revealed almost a third of patients who often suffer from migraines. "There are some patients, approximately one in three patients who said his headache cured after sexual activity," said Stevan Evers, neurologists and headache specialists from the University of Munster Germany.

Evers did not know why it happened, but according to his hypothesis, a surge of endorphins during sex may relieve headache. Endorphins, also known as the body's natural painkillers.

Migraine itself is triggered by various causes, such as flashes of light, food, and sex. Even so, according to some studies of small-scale, intimate relationships known to be more effective than pain medication to cope with headaches.

In a study conducted Evers and his team, involved 800 patients who suffer from migraine and 200 patients with cluster headaches. They were asked to fill out questionnaires about sexual assault headache when it comes, and how sex affects the intensity of the headache.

The results showed that one-third of patients had sexual intercourse when you're suffering from migraine or cluster headaches. In patients with migraine, 60 percent said his headache cured, with the majority claiming headache diminished or completely healed.

But in 30 percent of patients known to have sex actually aggravate headaches.

In patients with cluster headaches, a third said there was a decrease in total head pain or seperuhnya. Nearly 50 percent of this group say their headaches even worse when having sex.

Evers said, on those who experience a headache cure is possible the body secrete more endorphins when having sex.

"In general endorfsin release also occurs during extreme sports activities like running a marathon or triathlon. Possible patients also experienced when having sex," said Evers.

Even so, according to Alexander Mauskop, a neurologist and director of the New York Headache Center, the majority of migraine patients generally do not like to be touched or adjacent to the others when the pain comes.

"The release of endorphins while orgasm will help alleviate and even cure migraine. Masturbation so that might help," said Mauskop who was not involved in the study.
