Woman suffers stroke after oral sex orgasm causes brain bleed

A woman passed out mid-oral sex after her imminent orgasm caused a small stroke.

The unnamed 44-year-old was enjoying the fruits of her lover’s labor when she lost consciousness for two to three minutes.

He rushed her to the hospital, fearing she had suffered a fit.

When they arrived, the man told medics his partner’s body had gone stiff during the episode.

She felt sick when she arrived at the hospital and was suffering a nasty headache, which she scored as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale.

CT scan showed burst aneurysm

Doctors led by Yunus Gokdogan at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital wrote in a BMJ case report: “On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness.

“Her partner estimated she was unconscious for two to three minutes, with no convulsive activity reported. She had otherwise been well preceding the event.”

Given the woman’s symptoms — including the headache — Gokdogan’s team sent her for a CT scan.

It revealed a “trace of acute subarachnoid blood” — a type of stroke that causes bleeding in the space around the brain.

The patient’s bleed was caused by a small aneurysm, a bulge on a blood vessel like a balloon or bubble that bursts.

Passionate romps cause sudden surge in blood pressure

Gokdogan’s team warned that rigorous activity — including passionate romps — can cause aneurysms to burst.

They wrote: “Known risk factors for rupture include activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant.

“During sexual activity, blood pressure as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.”
