If you suffer from menstrual migraines, then your GP has probably told you that taking any form of ostrogen could increase your risk of having a stoke.
For women who suffer from migraines with aura, taking combined oral contraceptives heightens their stroke risk even more. It’s specifically the hormone estrogen in the oral contraceptive that can cause a stroke. “Estrogen has properties that can cause your blood to clot easier,” Rao says.
Although this is true. There are other options that we should be informed about.
My aim isn’t to promote bioidentical hormones.
I just think that we should be presented with all of the options,
so that we can decide for ourselves if this is a pathway that want to explore.
If you want utilise the benefits of taking estrogen when you’ve been told that you can’t, watch this.
