Headaches during periods

After my daughter' s birth about 3 years ago I used the 3 month injections not to fall pregnant. I stopped it about a year ago and are on triphasal since. My periods are so light I am bleeding only for one day, and everything is over then. But what worries me is that I get very sore headache' s during my menitruation. Is that normal or can I do something to stop these headache' s during this time?

Hormonal headcahes do occur. You could try changing your Pill, or just use painkillers at that time.

I get headaches and I am not using any contraception, it starts around 3 days before my period. But now I get headaches 3 days before and it last my entire period days.
