Acute homeopathy for migraines. Match the symptoms. This is only bandaid relief, deeper curative benefits are gained from classical homeopathy.http://www.truestarhealth.com/Notes/2242005.htmlhttp://www.1-800homeopathy.com/enews...eheadache.htmlhttp://www.peacehealth.org/KBASE/cam/hn-2242005.htmhttp://www.hpathy.com/DISEASES/heada...tment-cure.asphttp://healing.about.com/od/homeopat...o_headache.htm
From all of my reading, difficulty conceiving is associated with food folate deficiency and the MTHFR gene in many mamas. Migraines are also associated with folate deficiency and hormonal imbalances.
Here is an excellent explanation about MTHFR and pregnancy: http://lifebalanceinfertilitycoach.w...f-miscarriage/
Have you read in the Adrenal Fatigue or Thyroid threads. The long and short of it is that as our hormones change, the other hormones are interconnected and are affected. Saliva testing for thyroid, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen and cortisol are done over the course of the day. Stress, or alterations in nutrients could effect each of these. Same with detox, toxin exposures, pregnancy, diet, etc.
I have had endometriosis which is associated with painful menstrual cycles. Which I've learned is associated with hormonal imbalances, which are associated with gut dysbiosis. So, I'd suggest reading more about gut healing: Where to start? Help 101
There are specific nutrients which are related to hormonal balance. Have you had saliva testing done? There is commonly an association between androgen levels and estrogen levels. Both can be elevated. Read on the iodine thread also about the relation to thyroid receptors being blocked by bromides also. The hormones are all interrelated. My understanding is that all 5 hormones need to be saliva tested
: thyroid, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen and cortisol, multiple times during the day.
This is my Cliff's Notes to thyroid stuff: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...&postcount=130
Also, consider researching PCOS issues and the related hormonal imbalances: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d#post13936257Adrenal fatigue is also interconnected with stress, cortisol exhaustion, and thyroid levels.

Much easier to address these nutrient issues before trying to grow and feed a baby from a depleted mama. Glad you are seeking information proactively!
P. S. I'd focus on whole food probiotics for hormone, nutrient, gut health.
