The History of Migraine
Migraine with Aura
Fibromyalgia and Migraine
Migraine affects 25% of the female population during childbearing years (18-49)
60-70% improve in frequency of migraines ( particularly in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters)
4-8% of women with migraines symptoms worsen.
Approximately 10% of migraine cases start during pregnancy.
Pre-pregnancy headache patterns return almost immediately postpartum.
50% to 85% of migraine patients report an improvement in headache during early pregnancy, particularly when
Migraine is not accompanied by an aura
Migraine began as menarche
Migraine is related to menses
- Women with ongoing headaches at the end of the first trimester are unlikely to experience further reduction of headache.

Pregnancy is a symptom-producing event
The incidence of migraine in pregnancy is unknown.
Retrospective data has shown up to 60% incidence improvement during pregnancy however, patients with more frequent headaches may not see any improvement during pregnancy.
In comparison to non-migraineurs there has been no evidence of altered fertility rates.
No increased incidences of toxemia, abnormal labor, miscarriage, congenital malformations, or stillbirths reported in a study which compared 777 migraineurs versus 182 non-migraineurs.
