Question
First of all, I would want apologize about my poor English.
I started sexual abstinence, nearly 2 or 3 weeks ago. After this time, I felt a pain in center of my head , I believe that this pain is near pineal gland or pituitary gland .I Know this pain may have causes unrelated to celibacy, but I would want to know how a celibacy can cause headache, and how to relieve the kind of headache caused by celibacy .I stopped sex because I did not feel me well after having sex. I'm not being guided by a guru, it is difficult find one where I am located.


Note:This is the third time, I tried sex abstinence, all these times I  felt headache nearly after 2 or 3 weeks.
I study meditation, yoga, mudras, banda, chakras, mantras, i buy books about these subjects. Hence you can give me specific information, I am aware of these subjects a little.

Answer
1. Brahmacharya does not cause headaches which is the result of other factors.

2. Adequate physical & mental activity coupled with spiritual activity/meditation is a pre-requisite for sustained Brahmacharya. The headache is a sign of need for purification of the physical and astral bodies. Apply the Yogic techniques suggested in past answers on a daily basis without fail. Mere bookish study is not of any use. In the course of time, things will stabilize.

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.

Experience

The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
