Headaches and Progesterone Contraception Do Mix!

Migraines? Tension headaches? Premenstrual headaches? No matter what type of head ache you have you can use POPs (progesterone only pills or the "mini" pill). You can also safely use DMPA (depoProvera), Implanon and the Mirena IUD. So there are lots of good ways to contracept and get cycle control even if you have migraines. There are special types of migraines that may mean more work up, and may mean stroke risks, for that you do still have to have that discussion with your gyno. But don't give up on the idea of effective contraception just because a headache has you down!
