Hormones and migraines
Hormones are chemical messengers between organs in the body.
Increase in Migraine at puberty and perimenopause.
Medical menopause: ovaries can stay active for over 10 years after last period. One year after last period – but I have had hysterectomy. So migraines can get worse in menopause.
Hormones are only one of the factors that contribute to migraines.
Depends on your factors how they will affect you over your life.
