Birth Control Is Suitable For Women With Frequent Migraines?
Doctor. Is 3-month injectable birth control suitable for women with frequent migraines?
Good morning, thanks for the question
The use of hormonal contraception is known to trigger complaints of headache or in the form of migraine, especially because of the hormone estrogen. In such conditions migraine sufferers should not use other types of contraception such as combined birth control pills, or types of combined injection contraception. You can use a contraceptive method that only contains the hormone progestin alone, using a spiral or IUD, or sterilization to prevent pregnancy. You can consult further with your obstetrician for the right type of contraceptive method.
