Hormones Can Really Be a Headache

Let’s talk about these ‘hormone headaches’ briefly. These headaches, sometimes referred to as ‘menstrual migraines’, usually develop a day or two before or during the first few days of a woman’s cycle. This is due to the natural drop in estrogen levels in your body at these times. There are, besides menstruation, other factors that can lead to these headaches. These include some oral contraceptive pills, Menopause and pregnancy.

If you are experiencing headaches or migraines close to your monthly cycle, know or believe you are in menopause or are pregnant, keep a journal. Note when the symptoms began and how long the headache or migraine lasted. Then make an appointment to talk with one of our providers to discuss treatment options.

There are a few things you can do for yourself, in addition to the treatment plan recommended by your provider, to help manage or lessen symptoms of these headaches. These are:

Don’t forget, if your symptoms become severe, seek emergency treatment immediately.
