Complete hysterectomy & hormones

Has anyone dealt with having migraines after having a complete hysterectomy and you are unable to take hormones due to them causing you to have migraines.

  1. Hi there , Thanks for reaching out! I think you may find these two resources very helpful. Two of our contributors share their experiences having a hysterectomy and some members at the conclusion of the articles share some feedback as well in the comments.

    Not sure how recent your hysterectomy was, but sure hope your recovery went well. As you wait for others to hopefully share some feedback in the meantime I hope these articles are helpful. Best of luck to you!

    1. My hysterectomy was in January 2013. I had stage 4 endometriosis and had already had 6 surgeries for it in from 2007-2012. My husband and I tried to have children and did 9 cycles of fertility medication with no luck. After the last surgery in 2012 i told the doctor that if the pain came back I was done. Even though I was only 27 I knew it was the best thing for me to do. I recovered pretty good except for being on the hormones. I did fine until 2015 I had a migraine for 24 weeks straight. The dr's did testing and couldn't find what was causing them so they put me on medication for them and it helped. I ended up having to have an abdominal CT scan due to pain like I had before my hysterectomy and I had to stop taking the hormones for the test. I decided that I wanted to detox off of all medication for a month and low and behold the migraines were gone. I started going back on the medications one at a time until I figured out it was the hormones that was causing them. So i stopped taking them again and i have been good until the last 2 weeks. I have had 5 migraines in the last 2 weeks.
