Migraine headaches are related to female hormones. That's one of the reasons why women are three times more likely to get migraines than men. For many women, menopause stops these headaches. However, the hormonal changes leading up to menopause can make migraine worse before they get better. Taking female hormones used to treat menopause symptoms can help prevent migraine pain. You can ask your doctor for the lowest possible dose of hormones needed to control your symptoms. Keywords: menopausal migraine
