MIGRAINES AND WOMEN:
Migraine suffering is most common in women between the ages of 20 and 45. At this time in a woman’s life they have more job, family, and social responsibilities. More than half of all migraines in women occur right before, during, or after a woman has her period. This often is called “menstrual migraine.” But, just a small fraction of women who have migraines around their period only have migraines at this time. Most have migraine headaches at other times of the month as well.
Over 27 million women are affected by migraine pain in the United States today. Three times as many women as men suffer from migraine pain in adulthood. In childhood, boys are affected more than girls, but after adolescence, when estrogen influence begins in young girls, the risk of migraine pain and its severity rises in females.
10-14% of American women get menstrual migraines headaches. The vast majority of these women also have migraine attacks at other times of the month. Menstrual migraine is an attack that occurs up to 2 days before and up to 3 days after menstrual onset. These migraine attacks are usually more severe and harder to control than other types of migraine.
