Relationship of migraine headache and stroke to oral contraceptive use.
J Reprod Med. 1986 Dec; 31(12):1082-8.JR

Abstract

Are oral contraceptive users who also suffer from migraine headaches at higher risk of having a cerebrovascular accident? The data are inconclusive in establishing that women who used the relatively higher-dose pills prescribed in the 1960s have a higher risk of either thrombotic or hemorrhagic stroke. Furthermore, a review of the literature does not support the belief that those women who use oral contraceptives have a higher incidence of migraine headache. The available data do not indicate that migraine headache is necessarily a contraindication to prescribing oral contraceptives.
