Girls: Blurry Vision After Orgasm?

MeliPixie MeliPixie
So within the past year or so, I've noticed that after I have a solo orgasm, my vision is often blurred. Sometimes it lasts just a few minutes and goes away as I use my eyes, sometimes it's with me for hours, and sometimes it doesn't even happen. I was wondering if this is something I should worry about, or is it normal? How many of you (girls preferably) have experienced this as well? I'm a little nervous there is something wrong with me or my vision. Please help!

Sometimes after orgasm (mainly during partner play) I will get dizzy for a few seconds, but nothing bad. Blurry vision might accompany it, but I couldn't say for sure because I'm usually concentrating on the sometimes-dizziness or the awesome orgasm, haha.

Do you have high blood pressure? sometimes your blood pressure can increase during sex and might give you some blurriness while it was high. If that is the case talking to your doctor might help.

I would love an easy solution like that, but no, haha. My blood pressure is excellent. One time I wore my pulse monitor (I use one when I work out) during some solo fun, and watched my heart rate increase to over 190 beats per minute when I peaked, but it quickly returned to normal, just over my average resting 85 bpm. I'd hoped that would be it, but no. Hm.

Another good question is asking what you have (or haven't) eaten. It's quite possible that your blood sugar is low and it might cause you to get dizzy when you have an orgasm.

Unfortunately (or fortunately?), no. I have hypoglycemia, so I have a very strict eating schedule and menu... It's unlikely my sugar would be low because I'd still be feeling it after the blurriness went away.

I haven't had this happen, but I have felt disoriented, if sex involves me being in a position with my head backwards. I also tend to hiccup after sex for no apparent reason. I sound like I'm drunk. lol

Not really sure if I should vote, however while some would disagree with herbal remidies I use to be atleast modistly into them. I have a large book that has many herbal remidies and causes of health problems. Here's what it says about Blurred vision. "Chronically blurred vision is usually caused by common vision defects such as far/near sightedness or astigmatism. Disturbances of the fluid balance in the eye also can cause blurred vision. These disturbances may be limited to the eye itself, as in eyestrain and excessive tearing, or they may refelct disturbances in fluid balance throughout the body, as in diabetes, high blood pressure, and premenstrul syndrome." I know I'm not a girl but I have an anxiety issue when it comes to medical problems and can't help but try to add to the speculation. >_< Plus you have become a friend of mine and I saw this post on my board. My question to you would be not if you eat enough, but if you have changed your diet/workout plan/anything related to fluid gain/loss lately, and if so what have those changes been.

This happens to me fairly often. On a related note, I have better orgasms without my (extremely high prescription) glasses on.

hm, very good points you make there. *smiles and blushes at "friend"* I have started working out, in December, but this has been going on since before then, so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I'm also trying to eat healthier food, but I feel like that wouldn't adversely affect my vision, right? ^^;; The only other change is actually a big one. when I moved from my tiny sea-level hometown and moved in with Wolfie, we live practically on the side of a really small mountain, or a really big hill. I don't know our exact altitude, but I feel safe enough telling you it's Ithaca, NY, at the even-higher-altitude outskirts of the town. Would that make a difference, you think...?

I don't wear glasses, but I can see where they might get distracting. Wolfie doesn't do ANYTHING without his glasses but shower, and that includes sleep and sex. But he's the sexy nerdy type and I love it. >o<

It's possible, though I would look more directly toward dieting, that book actually recommends supplying your diet with a high amount of potassium. That would be similiar if you were running or doing extensive exercise, and considering the bpm rate I'd imagine it's possible to have the same effects. Though me speaking logically I think that would also depend on how much water intake you have and how long sessions might last and if you become dehydrated. (not sure if I am making sense at this point) What I mean is keep yourself hydrated like a runner would, potassium never hurts especially if you may not recieve enough. Also just curious but this is both eyes correct, and not one eye? As for the altitude adjustment, the only thing I could see there is the relation to the atmospheric pressure (might be wrong term to use there) and how the density of the oxygen would be different between the two regions. I think there is a condition that effects athletes who train in lower regions that go up to a higher region and how their lungs/bodys can't handel the lack of oxygen or something like that. bleh I'm no doctor but this is just my brain working.

PLEASE have a good general checkup and BE HONEST and tell your doctor about this. Maybe a GYN. It could be your BP is dropping during orgasm and causing a lack of blood flow sufficient to cause this effect. It could indicate a restricted blood flow such as carotid occlusion or partial blockage. When you say this lasts for "hours" that is certainly worth checking out. The other possibility is that it is due to HIGHER blood pressure and the effect that might have, if your pressure is already elevated. All these effects are due to blood flow and not usually hormone rushes..etc (as some say). What is "normal" of course, covers a WHOLE range of things, but you also describe something that could be a warning of medical issues. I see folks speaking about "blood sugar" and such, and while it is good to have ALL these things checked out, PLEASE, again, be honest with your doctor (this is a NORMAL human function (sex) and let THEM check and see if all is well). We want you here and HAPPY and WELL in the EF family.

I just checked a dietary chart, and I am definitely getting enough potassium, and I already drink tons of water and such. Yeah, this is both eyes, just for clarity. I've heard of that condition, it's sort of like getting the bends, but not as badly. We've had this apartment for a year and a half now though, with me living here off and on until I finally officially moved in right after Xmas, so I dunno if altitude would have anything to do with it either, just me talking ^^;;

Thanks so much for this post When I have a job and insurance that will actually cover sexual health types of checkups, I definitely plan on doing that. I just thought in the meantime you guys might have some ideas to calm my mind Thanks again

This has been the case for me before. I am hypoglycemic, so low blood sugar is a problem for me and very well could be a possible cause for the OP.

Interesting. The nervous system, to turn a phrase, gets trashed during an orgasm. Some people see colors and "hear" colors, and "feel" sound etc. Some people can't walk, or their teeth chatter and they shake (me) some people have other minor and short lived neuro after effects of orgasm. A lot of people feel very sleepy and some feel energized (I couldn't fall asleep for well over 2 hours after a particularly spectacular set of Os last night, while my man happily conked off in about 4 seconds.)

Your blood pressure rises precipitously during an orgasm, also a lot of blood leaves your non essential organs (for the orgasms) like the eyes and sometimes extremities and GI system, and barrels towards the genitals. Sometimes it can take a few minutes for your nervous system and your circulatory system to work normally post orgasm.

Is it minor blurriness? This happens to some people when they lie down and is fairly normal? Or can you not see any features of things at all? You said it only lasts a few minutes some of the time, but hours others. Most post orgasmic events don't last a really long time (although the endorphin rush can sometimes last for a day or two after a particularly good session.) You may want to mention it to your GYN the next time you have a pelvic exam or the next time you have a Physical with your doctor.

I wouldn't worry too much, but if your body is telling you something is wrong, make an appointment so your mind will be at ease.

It's probably completely normal for you, but sometimes having an exam and making sure someone else OKs that it's normal is important.

That does sound like something you might get checked out- maybe blood pressure or even a glucose problem? I don't know, but I'd talk to a doc about it.

It's lasted as long as an hour, and that's when it's really mind blowing!
