How to Treat Hormone Headaches?

Medical Treatment:
  • Migraine treatments - anti-migraine medicines can also be prescribed by your doctor to take around the time of your period
  • Oestrogen therapy - these are not commonly prescribed for menstrual migraines
  • Continuous contraceptive pills- If your contraceptive pills make your migraines worse, talk to your doctor. You can avoid the sudden fall in oestrogen by taking several packs continuously without a break if you have headaches during the days you do not take the pills
  • Hormone replacement therapy - HRT can be helpful to treat hot flushes and sweats
