In brief: Maybe
Good sex & orgasm can relieve stress, relax muscles and make us feel more connected .
.. Assuming the headache isn't bad enough to prevent arousal. However, it's pretty hard to feel sexy and close to someone if your head is pounding and you want to be left alone. There is also a type of migraine that is actually brought on by orgasm. Good news? There is therapy for that. See your doc if this is you.
