In this edition of EmpowHER's "HER Daily Dose" Bailey Mosier examines a study that answers the question of why women seem to be three times as likely to suffer from migraines than men.
Hi, I’m Bailey Mosier. This is your EmpowHER HER Daily Dose.
The National Headache Foundation reports that 30 million Americans suffer from migraines and women are three times more likely to have them than men. That’s a substantial difference. What gives?
Researchers from Harvard Medical School found that hormonal changes are a major reason women are far more likely than men to have migraine headaches. Women who experience migraines may find they often occur just before or just after the onset of menstruation. Women's patterns of migraines may also change during pregnancy and menopause.
There is no cure for migraines but doctors can help you manage them. So if you’re one of the 30 million Americans suffering from migraines, know that you’re not alone and you can get help.
That wraps up your EmpowHER HER Daily Dose. Join me here at EmpowHER.com every weekday for your next dose of women’s health.
