In brief: No
"sex headaches" are more common in men, often just before or during orgasm.
Usually these don't indicate anything worrisome. But if it comes on suddenly rather than building gradually, and it's your first one, it's best to see a doctor (primary care physician or neurologist, etc) for an evaluation.
