Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 5 years ago.
Throbbing pain after orgasm is due to increased pressure of cerebral blood vessels. Such pain may last for few minutes to few hours, and the pain is usually throbbing or stabbing.
This can be treated with medications from your doctor. the medications used are-indomethacin, beta blockers like metoprolol.Also doctor can prescribe beta blockers which are to be taken daily.
Also indomethacin, an anti-inflammatory, or triptans, a class of anti-migraine medication, can be taken an hour or so before sex to ward off headache.
Please make an appointment with doctor for management.

Kind Regards
Dr Robert.

Well, this can be due to nerve compression or a muscle pull. Anti- inflammatory pills and painkillers are usually helpful in such cases.
