It’s bad enough to suffer from migraines but so many women also deal with them during that time of the month. Menstrual migraines affect some 60% of women who have a history of migraines and for many women, those migraines occur more frequently during their cycle. One viewer writes in that she has them before and after her menstrual cycle and wants to know the cause and if there is anything she can do to stop the pain!
ER physician Dr. Travis explains these migraines are usually due to a drop in estrogen levels. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains that a couple of days before a woman’s period as well as the first few days when estrogen levels are really low, it can be more severe.
What to do? Dr. Batra suggests if this problem is truly hormonal, use a vaginal ring and stack it as opposed to removing it every month. This way, women will only have to experience that hormonal drop every 6-8 months. Then, knowing when that is coming, women can take preventative measures by medicating with a triptan. While most people know they can take triptan in pill-form, Dr. Batra points out there are also fast-acting nasal sprays and injections available.
