I'm not sure this post belongs here, but I want to discuss with the Mothering crowd, not my physician, who will likely prescribe birth control pills.
My menstrual cycle has returned only about five months ago - about the time my DD turned one. It was irregular at first, and has now become fairly predictable, within a few days. For the past three months, I've gotten really terrible migraines exactly two weeks into the cycle - around ovulation. I used to get migraines when I was a teenager, but I never thought, back then, to track my cycle to see if they were hormonal. They went away for years, with only an occasional appearance. So to have three months in a row of excruciating, two-day headaches accompanied by nausea and, ultimately, vomiting, seems like it must be hormonally instigated. Tylenol won't touch the pain, and my DD is still BFing, so I'm hesitant to take anything else. I'm trying to avoid sugar and caffeine, although I do drink a cup of coffee every day. Does anyone have experience with a hormonal headache? Know anything that may help? Thanks so much!
