Not Tonight Dear, I Have A Headache

Planning on being a September bride?† Caterer, florist, bridesmaids, mother-in-law... it's enough to tie you in knots before you tie the knot.† Wedding planning is notoriously stressful, but few brides realize that this stress may trigger physical problems like migraines.†

Stress is one of the most common migraine triggers. . And your wedding night is not the time you want to say "Not tonight dear, I have a headache."

Migraine is much more than just a headache.† It's a chronic and recurrent throbbing pain on one side of the head, with or without other symptoms like sensitivity to light or sound, visual changes, and nausea or vomiting.† Migraines are 6 times more common in women than in men.† One out of 4 women with migraine will get them monthly along with her period.

The good news about migraine is that it is treatable with prescription and over-the-counter medicines.† In some women, birth control pills aggravate or trigger migraines; in other women, low dose birth control pills may actually reduce migraine incidence.†††
