Migraines and Menopause

July 12th, 2011

It is often said that migraine frequency will drop as women enter menopause, but nothing about migraines is ever clear and simple.

A recent study presented in Lisbon at The European Neurological Society found that certain women as they approach menopause do experience an improvement in their migraines, but other women can find their migraines either start at menopause or worsen. The researchers found that women, whose migraines were closely tied to their menstrual cycle during their fertile years, had a better chance (but by no means certain) of seeing their migraines improve or even stop with menopause.
