does menstruation cause headaches

does menstruation cause headaches? Ive been having these light headaches, Even tablets dont make them go away. I thought after giving birth all the menstruation pains go away but to me I still have them. I've got two kids now, Acne before my periods, Painful breasts and its worse this headache.

Re: does menstruation cause headaches

Changes in hormone levels can definitely cause headaches. You're not alone!

yes they can...sigh we are told that once we have our little ones things change for the better....yeah right lol i have more severe and heavier cramps and small clots than i ever had in my life and my last one is 14 now! so i would put this down to your period...also try an OTC LIQUID acetominophin extra strength if you haven't already...i have had the worst ocular migraines (period unrelated) to the point where i go temp. blind in one eye and i freak out and once i lay down and take this meds they are almost as good as a dr would give you! try them out if you haven't already, they are AMAZING!!!

Yes they can. But my ob/gyn told me that they can switch you to a pill that you won't have headaches on. So you might want to call your dr and see. I suffer from menstrual migraines. I get them during the placebo pill. So my ob told me to skip the placebo for 3 months and then let myself have a period. I hope this will help. Good luck
