HOW DO CHRONIC MIGRAINES AFFECT THE SEX LIVES OF WOMEN?

March 27th, 2012

While it is easy to understand that during and just after a migraine attack sex would not be on the mind of most women, researchers from Italy found that over all sex drive and desire is reduced in women who suffer with chronic migraines.

The researchers examined 100 women, with an average age of 40. The women gave in depth histories about their sex lives. It was found that these women experienced greater stress in general and specifically when it came to sex.

Previous studies have reported an association with migraines and depression (which is also known to negatively affect sexual desire and activity).

Reducing the number of and intensity of migraines, as opposed to taking pain pills, helps to reduce stress and concerns about when the next attack may occur.
