I struggle with menstruation related migraine, can anyone help me?
by Benthe Ulseth
Hello,i am a 32 year old woman from Norway. I have a question about jusing progesterone for menstruation related migraine. I have always struggle with a lot of migraine from, the period of ovalating and through menstuation week.The migraine is so painfull that i can't do anything. I just lay in a dark room for days. I also struggle with Pms issues such as: fatigue, brainfog, moodswings,depression and i'm very pale in the face.
The last year i have used Utrogestran 100 mg(progesterone) from dag 15- 27 of my period cycle.It has had a very good effect on my depression and it's fortunately gone. I have noted that the the menstrual period is a little bit easier. Now i have migraine in menstruation week.The migraine is still a huge problem and it is so painful.It destroys my life every month.I also have a lot of menstruation pain the first 3 days. The fatigue, brainfog, moodswings i still struggle with. I want to sleep all day long in this period.
My question is: Can i use a larger dose of Utrogestan to prevent menstruation migraine and pms? Mayby my dose is so small? I think utrogestran exist's in 200- 400 mg tablets.
And what about sideeffects when using a higher dose?
I hope anyone can help me and answer this questions.
