Hormonal Headaches and Menstrual Migraines

Over the past few months I am starting to experience a particular type of headache on the second day of my period. I don't get these types of headaches at any other time during the month...it is a sharp pain in the front of my head that like clockwork occurs on Day 2. Prior to these headaches starting, I was experiencing a different type of headache approximately 48 hours prior to my period starting...that type of headache was not painful, it was more like a weird fatigue-like dull feeling in my head and the back of my neck...very hard to explain...but my head would feel "cloudy" and tired and weird. I don't seem to be getting those anymore now that I am getting what I think are menstrual migraines on Day 2. I wish I knew why these headaches come on and more importantly, how to prevent them.

I hate periods

The cramps, water retention, bloating, the blood clots, mood swings, the whole nine yards.

I have tried the tampons, they did'nt work for me, so i went back to pads.

I don't know about the rest of u but i'm 44 years old and i can't wait till the menopause comes i don't care, about the hot flashes, or whatever comes with it i just want the periods to stop.

If i was to use the tampons it would last too many days thats why i use the pads the less time the better, yes the pads feel like diapers, that's what i call them when i have to change them.

I do know how some of u feel, the cramps are bad some months and then the cramps are not even there.

It has an alter-ego!

I can't stand the fact that since I've been trying to get pregnant, my period has developed an alter ego..

Its always on time for the same length of time and then the one time I think I'm prenant, it decides to come 4 days late and last for only 2 days. What is that about? The cramps last for a normal cycle but thats about it! It's developed an ego all on its own:)

Cramps need prescription pain meds, not OTC

Cramps are the worst. I've had my period since I was 10 1/2 (I'm 33 now), it has always been what I consider heavy with clots. I twisted my right knee when I was 19 and ever since then I know I will start my period in the next several days because I have burning pain right below and along the right side of that knee. I took the pill for about 2 years, it did nothing for the cramps and my cycle is exactly 28 days unless I'm super stressed out, then it can be 40 days. OTC pain killers don't work, I have to take 5 advil every 4 hours, not uncommon for me to have taken 14 in 24 hours. I have had surgery twice this year so I have leftover 500mg hydrocodone w/ apap. 2 of those actually work for about 4 to 6 hours or longer depending on my pain level. I actually had less pain from major surgery than from cramps.Bloating isn't much of an issue, retain about 2-3lbs. Birth control gave me a migraine every day and caused weight gain even though I worked out every day. I lost 10lbs by going off the pill and only have a migraine at the beginning and the end of my period. I've been more emotional with the past few cycles, but that has more to do with other health problems going on the past several months.
