The use of oral contraceptives often results in growth of frequency, the number of complications and duration of migraine attacks due to aggravation of fluctuation of the level of female sex hormones. Women sensitive to such hormonal differentials may face various vascular changes which make them more vulnerable towards the factors inducing migraine. Primarily, this vulnerability is definite for the women who formerly were disposed to headaches.

It is well known that headaches are the most frequent side effect of the use of oral contraceptives. Moreover, just this effect is the most frequent occasion of the refusal of contraceptives. One study showed that more than one third of the women applying hormonal contraceptives had been under necessity to refuse them due to significant growth of frequency and intensity of migraine attacks.
In press there appeared the materials of a rather interesting study. French scientists surveyed more than a thousand women who administered oral contraceptives for a period not less than one year. They came to conclusion that administration of oral contraceptives, without doubt, aggravated the course of migraine. But, in addition, they found out one interesting fact more: the longer women take oral contraceptives the weaker headaches they had. In other words, the body is able to adapt gradually to artificially introduced estrogens.
If a woman has headaches, but she does not want to refuse oral contraceptives she must take nonsteroid anti-inflammatory medications. Use them every day, beginning from the twentieth day of menstrual cycle. This will help to prevent the emergence of headaches in the days when a woman stops to take contraceptive tablets (usually from the twenty first to the twenty eighth day of the cycle. Continue to use nonsteroid anti-inflammatory medications up to the second day of the next cycle.
In each individual case migraine has its own scenario of development. Sometimes headaches will increase and become more frequent after the woman starts to take hormonal contraceptives. If before the administration of oral contraceptives she has one or two migraine attacks per month, then after that the attacks may be four, six or eight. If before each attack lasts not more than 24 hours, then with the beginning of take of oral contraceptives attacks may last two or three days. As a result days free of headaches will be less and less.
Moreover, hormonal medications may generate attacks in women with elevated sensitivity to migraine factors. Even if it is the case that they have never suffered from headaches.
In the patients who suffer from migraine the use of oral contraceptives may induce very severe complications. For instance, in these later days there are reports that cases of myocardial infarction in young women- migraine sufferer became more frequent. They all were found out to take hormonal oral contraceptives.  Though such cases are not many, it is not likely that it is just a coincidence. Severity of such complication makes one to forget statistic ratios.
