I have been taking contrceptives for 25 years. I am having more and severe migraines. I am wondering if long term use is contributing to problems.If so what are my options?
They did in me, but, I suffered them gladly in order to not get pregnant. They seemed to cause them in me even early on taking them but it did get worse the longer i was on them. You might mention this to the doctor prescribing them to see if you are eligible for preventative migraine meds. I always had a migraine the second day of my period with them and backed my pills up one day so I could have the migraine on my off day. I never had the migraines where I was sick on my stomach or out of commission for 3 days, just a super bad headache for 24to 36 hours with some aura. Talk to your doc on Monday if possible.
