C is for Coital Cephalalgia (sex headache)

Coital Cephalalgia is a rare type of headache that is associated with sexual activity.  Sufferers report a dull head pain that increases in intensity alongside sexual excitement, and reaches full strength at orgasm. 

The head pain lasts any where between one minute and a couple of days.  So those who suffer may choose to try medications, or just avoid sex all together.  

Despite the old "not tonight honey, I have a headache" joke, men are more prone to suffer from coital cephalagia than women.

 

PS. If you don't suffer from Coital Cephalagia and one day during sex you get a very sudden and severe headache, you should go to the hospital because you might have a brain haemorrhage.

V is for Vaginal Dilator

Vaginal dilators are smooth, rigid, cylindrical plastic shapes of varying sizes that are used to gradually stretch and lengthen the vaginal muscles.

Vaginal dilators can be really effective in the treatment of a number of medical conditions and are also used after gender reassignment surgery to help the healing process and prevent damage to the newly-formed vagina.

Medical conditions that can be treated with vaginal dilators include Vaginismus (vaginal muscle spasm and pain), Vaginal Agenesis (rare birth defect where the vagina is not fully formed), Lichen Sclerosus (genital scarring) , and damage to the vagina caused by radiation/ radiotherapy treatments.
