Does low estrogen cause migraine ?

I am 43 and have suffered migraine with aura for several years. Iv recently read that low oestrogen can be a cause but can also be a risk of ovarian and breast cancer . Yet in another article migraine suffers are believed to be less at risk of breast cancer. Confused? I am!

Its still not established whether low estrogen really causes migraine. However you may stop worrying about the low estrogen because a history of migraine is a contraindication for the prescription of the same. You may continue with non hormone drugs for prophylaxis of migraine. hope that answers the query
Take care
