I’d really like some advice please. Since my daughter was born 5 years ago (I’m now 39) I have been taking the progesterone only pill on and off. First I was on Cerelle for 18 months and started having migraines with aura every month or so, then every two weeks so I stopped taking it. I have since tried Noriday and Norgeston which give me low level headaches (although not migraines) on an almost daily basis. I have taken thrse for periods of six months to a year at a time before I find it too much and stop, only to restart a month or so later because I’m too anxious just to use condoms and it is very stressful.
My question would be, should I not be taking the pop pill if the migraines only started since taking it ( I had never in my life had one before this time)? I didn’t think there was a blood clot/stroke risk with pop pills but in the leaflet I notice it says to stop taking if you experience migraine/headache that started on the pill.
I don’t know where to go from here if this is the case because I have always had very heavy periods and so wouldn’t be keen to try the copper coil as the non hormonal option.
