Instead of opting to take an aspirin or searching through your messy medicine cabinet and going to the nearest doctor.

There is a free, fun and healthy way to alleviate those common ailments. Referred to as the ‘’big O” – yes an orgasm is the miracle cure to staying healthy and balanced according to a Brown University Health Promotion.

It is not just a fun way to spend the night but “also contains great healing properties that treat anything from headaches to premenstrual syndrome (PMS) cramps.”

Dopamine, endorphins and serotonin are all the natural chemicals that get released during an orgasm which leaves you feeling content, warm and sleepy. When these chemicals enter your bloodstream they can enhance pleasure and induce pain relieving sensations.

Wondering how this is possible? Our pain threshold builds during the ‘’big O” making you immune to the pain. Without further a due, here are the common pains that grabbing your partner could alleviate; so forget the meds.

Remember this the next time you have a throbbing headache as orgasms can take that migraine pain or cluster headache away. A 2013 study published in the Cephalalgia journal, found that relief comes in all forms (hey there).

The medical term for hiccups is singultus, the annoying ailment that just refuses to pass no matter what you do. Drinking water upside down, chugging down sugar water or a teaspoon of peanut butter. A case report published in 2002 in the Canadian Family Physician stated that a healthy 40-year old man made his troublesome hiccups vanish for 12 months when he ejaculated during intercourse.

Morning Sickness
