I have suffered w/ migraines for years (even prior to bc pills) which gets worse around the beloved period that us women have been blessed with, ugh. I am currently on bc pills (honestly I forget the trade name) but I also suffer from anemia prior to any periods and dysmenorrhea during periods which is why I choose to only have 4 periods at most per year. Iron pills, 50 mg imitrex, plus 800+ mg ibuprofen takes the edge off (which is no doubt unhealthy) but nothing works entirely... Ice packs on my face, low light with no noise while lying down is really the only remedy that works best for me. Ladies, you might also become anemic during your period and that's another thing to consider and address with your gyno.
