Hormones & Migraine Triggers




Dr. Patricia Feito, Family Medicine Physician at Baptist Health Primary Care, explains how women are more susceptible to getting migraines than men, because of hormones: “Every single month women go through their menstrual cycle, so what we’re seeing with the premenstrual patients is that when they have a drop and a sharp decline in their estrogen during four to five days prior to their menstrual cycle that’s when migraines are triggered.”

She also says into the menopausal years women tend to see an improvement in their migraines when it is associated with hormone variant.
