Menstrual Migraines

Menstrual Migraines can occur before, during or immediately after the menstrual period, or during ovulation.

While it is not the only hormonal culprit, serotonin is the primary hormonal trigger in headache.

Menstrual migraines are primarily caused by the raise and fall of hormones in the body. Oestrogen is one of the female hormones that specifically regulates the menstrual cycle. It is also necessary for the production of serotonin. As oestrogen levels rise and fall during the course of the menstrual cycle, the levels of serotonin in the brain will rise and fall. When the levels of oestrogen change, women will be more vulnerable to headaches.

Serotonin levels are monitored in the brainstem and changes in serotonin levels can affect activity in the brainstem.
