Migraines & HRT: More or Less?

I'm only 6 weeks post op (TAVH-BSO) and on 1 mg estradiol. Whereas I used to get premenstrual migraines in the 2 days preceding my period, I'm now getting them every week since surgery. Just saw my Bahamian OBGYN - she said go OFF the HRT, which doesn't seem right. I talked her into trying to add some progesterone (Bio-identical) and she didn't know about Bio-identicals, but is researching it for me. Can anyone give me any input on how they adjusted their HRT to eliminate migraines? Many Thanks.

Migraines & HRT: More or Less?

My migraines went away when I got off the oral estradiol 1 mg tablets and on to the compounded bi-est/progesterone gel. I'm not sure if it was the dosing, method, or lack of progesterone that caused the migraines.

Migraines & HRT: More or Less?

Hi-I also am wondering-I'm 14 days post-op(LAVH-BSO) was told by my doctor that by taking it ALL I no longer would suffer from migraines and yet I had my first one two days ago. I started on 2mg of Estradiol daily 1 month before surgery for bad PMS and my doctor has increased it to twice daily 3days after surg due to hot flashes/nausea I was having. I was told also told that Estradiol was all that was needed-I feel really confused? Should I be using something more. I really don't know much about HRT

Migraines & HRT: More or Less?

Thanks for your input. My doc did prescribe Prometrium for me to take along with the estradiol. I'll see what that does, then work on a different delivery if they're still a problem. I realize I'm still a "newbie" being so early in post-op, but weekly migraines are slowing my recovery (AND honkerblonkIN ME OFF!). I only started getting them at 40 and they arrived like clockwork before my period, so I KNOW it's a hormone issue. I've read conflicting info saying that TOO MUCH estrogen can cause migraines, but that pre-menstrual ones can mean TOO LITTLE!!! oy....
