Study: Sex Cures Headaches

GERMANY — A new study suggests instead of using painkillers for a headache, try having sex.

Researchers from the University of Munster in Germany have found sexual activity can lead to “partial or complete relief” of head pain in migraines.

Experts found more than half of migraine sufferers in the study who had sex during a migraine experienced an improvement in symptoms, and one in five reported no pain at all.

Scientists suggest one reason for the relief is that sex triggers endorphins, the bodies natural pain killers, which reduce or eliminate the headache.

Neurologists collected data on 400 patients who had been treated over a two-year period.
