A study recently published in Journal of Headache and Pain established a correlation between women suffering from migraine disease and experiencing pain during sex.

Migraines Affect Sexual Life of Sufferers
[w]omen who suffered from migraines reported a greater degree of pain during intercourse, a higher frequency of fear of sexual intercourse and penetration and lower levels of satisfaction after intercourse than the other women.

Furthermore, pain levels during sexual activity were related to the severity of a woman's migraine headaches.


Readers, how, if at all, do migraines affect your sex life?
