Migraine: Are we sexier?

Oh, the perks of having migraines… they are so plentiful, well not really, but this article mentions one interesting effect. First of all, some of us experience a higher sexual libido with migraine with aura.

Secondly, some say an orgasm is an abortive. But it can also be a trigger. Luck of the draw.

Migraine Sufferers: Are they sexier

The study included 37 women and 31 men. 90% were not married. 23% suffered migraines and 36% tension headaches.

“We discovered that migraine subjects reported higher levels of desire than tension-type headache counterparts,” Houle says. “It seems as if the migraine subjects knew this already. When asked to rate their level of sex desire, they thought they had more than other people.”Migraine Sufferers: Are they sexier

  • 24% of the men had more sexual desire than the women regardless of headache type.
  • But both genders with migraines had 20% more sexual desire than without.


“That difference was maintained across gender,” Houle says. “This results in female migraine sufferers being quite like normal males in sexual desire.” Migraine Sufferers: Are they sexier


This is a small study really. I’m just posting it because of the content. I have no idea if this is even true for me. I do have a healthy libido but what is ‘normal’.
