As per Mayo Clinic, the following is the most recommended treatment to treat hormonal headaches:
Treatment for Preventive MedicineThis includes taking medicines such as anticonvulsants and antidepressants, magnesium calcium channel blockers as well as beta blockers, to treat symptoms. If the medications do not perform, your physician may suggest every month injections using a calcitonin gene related monoclonal antibody peptide. In addition, your doctor may suggest lifestyle adjustments, like routine exercise, stress-reducing and following a balanced diet.
Over-the-counter Pain Relievers:If your headache is not that intense, your physician may suggest that you try some pain relief medications available over the counter that include ibuprofen naproxen sodium along with NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications).
Hormone Replacement TherapyThe majority of females have reported intense headaches during the time before menopausal symptoms (perimenopause) and post menopausal. Some women are suggested hormone replacement therapy in perimenopausal and menopausal periods to help balance the hormonal cycle that has been disrupted. Therapy for hormone replacement has been shown to help alleviate headaches for some women, but can also worsen symptoms in other women.
AcupunctureSome ladies have discovered acupuncture extremely effective in getting some relief from migraines.
Triptans & Gepants:The medicines that fall into the categories mentioned above have been shown as effective in reducing migraine caused by hormones.
