headache after ejaculation
Apr 15, 2001

does being HIV+ and taking protease inhibitors cause headaches after ejaculation? It doesn't happen immediately but if I masturbate at night the next day I have a terrible headache. If in the morning then the headache is that day. What's up with that?

Response from Dr. Henry

That is not a side effect I have heard about unless the person is taking Viagra or poppers (the levels will be elevated due to the protease inhibitors and thus can get delayed side effects). KH

Will I be med resistent?
Polylastic acid
