Headache during sex


Q: Good afternoon, i am 40 years old female. there is history of high blood pressure during my pregnancy. children is 8 and 4 now. when i my husband and i have sex, just as i reach my climix, i get this stinging headache on the left side of my head. it feels as if my whole left side of my brain wants to pop. after about half hour, then stinging subsides but the headache stays. the first time i took medication the headache went away after about 4-6hours. the second time, today 7 hours later i still have the headache. although this only happened twice, i am worried because i am a headache and migraine sufferer and this is not the same. can you possibly explain what this is?
