I had a crippling, intense headache after orgasming to the point where I could not stand. It eventually went away, returned the next couple of times I orgasmed (diff. days each time) always lessening with each occurrence until it stopped happening?
See Below.: Its rare, but a headache associated with sexual activity (including at the time of orgasm) is described. The fact that it stopped happening is a bit re-assuring, but if it recurs, please do get evaluated immediately.

Condoms?: Are you using condoms? You may be having a reaction to the latex or the spermicide, or a lubricant. Try a different type and see if that helps. If you aren't using lube, you may need to.
