The Bizarre Side Effect 1 In 100 People Experience During Sex

For SELF, by Zahra Barnes. As your sexual arousal ramps up on the trippy journey to orgasm, pleasure is probably the only thing on your mind. Unfortunately, for some people, pain interrupts the party. At least one percent of adults experience coital cephalalgia, or “sex headaches,” aka head pain that occurs before, during, or after orgasm. Here’s what you need to know about this condition, which is basically the unpleasant epitome of a buzzkill. Mayo Clinic spotlights two kinds of sex headaches. The first is “a dull ache in the head and neck that intensifies as sexual excitement increases,” and the second is “a sudden, severe, throbbing headache that occurs just before or at the moment of orgasm.” Loyola Medicine adds a third to the mix, saying this condition can also manifest as “a headache that occurs after sex and can range from mild to extremely painful. The headache gets worse when the patient stands and lessens when the person lies back down,” according to José Biller M.D., a neurologist who is chair of the Department of Neurology with the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and certified in Headache Medicine by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties. Sex headaches can occur in clusters or out of the blue. Some people have to deal with them often, and for others, they only happen once a lifetime, according to Mayo Clinic. No matter which kind of sex headache someone experiences, it ...

CONCLUSIONS: The observed changes in CoM motion at POST2 may be associated with atypical running biomechanics that can translate to greater mediolateral impulses, potentially increasing the risk of injury. This study demonstrates the use of an accelerometer as an effective tool to detect atypical CoM motion for runners due to fatigue, recovery, and musculoskeletal pain in real-world environments.

Primary extrarenal Wilms tumor of the gynecologic tract is extremely rare with scattered case reports occurring in the ovary, uterine corpus and cervix. Only 9 cases of primary ovarian Wilms tumor have been reported to date. Here, we provide an extensive literature review and describe 2 patients with ovarian Wilms tumor: a 36-yr-old female (patient 1) and a 16-yr-old female (patient 2), both presenting with abdominal pain and suspected ovarian torsion. They were each found to have unilateral ovarian masses measuring>15 cm in size which were removed by unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Microscopically, the tumors ...

CONCLUSION: Incidence of repeated thrombectomy was low. However, the high number of patients with known origin of stroke etiology raises the question how their monitoring may be optimized. The number of patients with remarkable extracranial pathologies or intracranial endothelial lesions supports current clinical practice to pay attention to final angiographic series.

Whether indigenous or introduced, red deer (Cervus elaphus,left) now roam every continent except Antarctica. Females ( “hinds”) and males (“stags” or “harts”) segregate most of the year into bachelorette and bachelor groups, respectively. In preparation for autumn battles for a harem of hinds, each hart’s antlers (right) start growing in the spring before shedding by end of winter. Harder than bone, their antlers have been fashioned by humans into knives and other tools for thousands of years. Antler carvers learned rather quickly not to discard leftover horn into campfires because...
