38 years old, Menstrual migrains getting worse, on BCP
I am 38, and I have always had menstrual migraines but the past two months they are worse. The one this morning was really, really bad. I have been taking birth control pills to control my irregular cycles (they became irregular when I had to have an ovary removed- and I have been having some hormonal issues since then- hot flashes, funny cycles, pre menopausal type stuff). When I started the BCPs, my migraines got allot better. But, as I said the past 2 months have been really bad. I've asked my gyno about it but she doesn't see a problem. I worry because I have heard taking hormones at my age can be high risk, esp if you already have migraines. I don't smoke. Any one have this experience?
