Hi, forum newbie here. I’m a 45 year old female and I have just stopped taking The Pill after 20+years on it. What am I in for? My neurologist couldn’t give me a definitive answer. I would say about 75%of my migraines are menstrual migraines. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
Welcome to the Migraine.com discussion forum! We are so glad you are here.
I wish I could tell you one way or the other, but the thing is what works well for some women, won’t work at all for others. Meaning some women will do ok when they stop taking birth controls and others not so much. This article has information on migraine and birth control; https://migraine.com/blog/birth-control-migraine-prevention/. I wish I had more information for you on this!
I’ve been on birth control since the age of 16. I’m now 29. I’ve been on and off of it a few times over the years for different reasons and for me, it has not made a difference in the frequency or severity of my migraines.
