blue_headache_image.jpgAlthough headaches are a traditional turn-off for amorous couples, new research published in the journal Headache suggests that people susceptible to migraines actually report greater levels of sexual desire.

The authors suggest that the link may be levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin – which are linked to libido and have also been found to increase during migraine onset.

Luckily, greater levels of sexual desire tend to be a general trait in those susceptible to migraine, rather than being linked to the experience of headache itself.
