A new study found that partial or full relief of headaches comes from sexual activity rather than painkillers.
Accorded to The Telegraph, a team of neurologists put together this study from the University of Munster, Germany.
Their study titled “The impact of sexual activity on idiopathic headaches: An observational study,” suggests that one in five patients left without any pain at all, and more than half experienced and improvement in symptoms.
This may be caused by the release of endorphins — natural painkillers — triggered by sex.
“Our results show that sexual activity during a migraine attack might relieve or even stop an attack in some cases, and that sexual activity in the presence of headache is not an unusual behavior.”
An anonymous questionnaire was sent to about 1,000 random headache-suffering patients.
