The term doctors use for fainting is syncope say "SING-kuh-pee". Fainting one time is usually nothing to worry about. But it is a good idea to see your doctor, because fainting could have a serious cause. Fainting is caused by a drop in blood flow to the brain. After you lose consciousness and fall or lie down, more blood can flow to your brain so you wake up again.

Low blood sugar, intense sex, fatigue, and even anxiety may trigger fainting. People who pass out after an orgasm usually do not need to worry. Fainting has many benign causes and is not usually a major cause for concern. However, as several serious heart conditions may cause fainting episodes, it is important to see a doctor to discuss fainting.
