I had never had a migraine before I started a new type of oral contraceptive in 2012. The migraines took a while to start showing up after I started taking them, which is why it took a while for me to figure out they were the cause. I stopped taking them at the beginning of February this year as well as discontinuing my painkillers (I began suffering from MOH). However, though my my migraines have become much more sporadic and the pain less severe, I still get them. Not only is it making me less enthusiastic about my "detox" but it's also making me depressed. I suppose I hoped I would stop taking the pill and the migraines would stop. Does anyone have any information on how they work with migraines? Do they permanently stint your hormones? Has anyone had experience with them before?
