Do your headaches have any side effects like numbness in your hands, slurred speech, or blurred vision?

there are all kinds of migraines, and your doctor may or may not be helpful in treating them. But if you have any of those symptoms, you should not be on a pill with estrogen. Tell your doctor asap if so.

sunnybee88:  I doubt you are pregnant.

I was on the pill from age 18 to 28, and while on it, I got migraines (didn’t realize they were caused by the pills until I went off bc). I would be in so much pain for about 24-30 hours that it would actually make me sick to my stomach and I couldn’t handle lights, sounds, etc. Sometimes I’d get auras around objects, too.

I had to go back on the pill briefly for medical reasons, and when I mentioned the migraines to my doctor, she put me on a different low-dose pill (Lo Loestrin Fe) and I didn’t get headaches on that. Maybe ask your doctor about that?
