I have dreadful menstrual migraines that occur on the first few days of my period. Sometimes with classic aura, sometimes without. Always on the right side of my head and affecting my vision, hearing and with awful neck pain. Usually lasts 3-4 days in total. I always had bad periods due to endometriosis (now removed) and now use the mirena coil (which I know has some progesterone in it). I am 43 and have 2 kids and don't want any more! I am also hypothyroid (almost under control), which I know is all linked in, and have found the thyroid site very helpful, so thought I'd try this one for the migraines!
I have read about progesterone and oestrogen creams, and wondered if anyone could give me any general advice about trying these out - how much to use and when, and which one to use.
