I am getting headaches at the same time each month. Are they hormonal?

Cyclical headaches, occurring around about the same time each month, are often related to your cyclical hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Most women experience them as their period approaches each month. At this stage in the menstrual cycle, the oestrogen levels may be high relative to your progesterone levels. This I refer to as “oestrogen dominance”.

How to treat: Many women respond very well to progesterone supplementation, taken either throughout the cycle (except those days of menstruation) or for the 2nd two weeks of the cycle leading up to the menstrual period. It has the potential of preventing these headaches altogether.

Caution: If the headaches persist, further investigation may be required.
