All girls and women who have systematically during menstruation, are well aware that this is not the most pleasant time. Discomfort and discomfort in the body is always unpleasant. But more than half suffer chronic headaches throughout the period. This problem is very common, so we consider the causes and consequences of this condition, and learn how to deal with a similar problem.
The impact of PMS on the body?
Briefly explain what happens in the body of any young woman in this period. The body of each female intended primarily for procreation. Therefore, it is understandable why most of the biological processes tied to preparing to conceive. This is what happens in a period of approximately two weeks before ovulation. Hormonal balance goes up sharply, the egg prepares for the conception of the fetus, and the blood goes an awfully large number of different hormones. If conception does not occur, then the egg body is no longer needed, and he rejects it that will cause ovulation.
If you have a headache during menses, so this should be approached very carefully. Such pain differ from regular migraines, and therefore to treat them it is necessary separately. Besides such violations of the normal state of the female body can be observed in the period of menstruation, and for 7-15 days before.

It also depends on the General sensitivity of the organism.
Headache during menses also provoked the usual emotional instability. Mood swings, frustration in life, and the like – is just a symptom caused by the high hormone levels.
Often the reason for such state ceases and contraceptives. These drugs work by a sharp rise in the level of estrogen in the blood, and as soon as the menstruation, it also falls sharply. Such instability and significant changes in hormone levels and makes your head almost explode.
