First of all, let me say I'm thrilled to have found you guys. I'm in my first cluster since getting online and this site has been invaluable. I've been glued to it for 2 days and I've read everything except the archives! You've heard it all before, but you really are the only ones who understand - including most doctors! I'm looking forward to following the message boards and joining you in what seems to be a (Mostly) positive, fun, and accepting atmosphere of discussion. My first question is about birth control pills, but in a different context than I've seen so far. In searching the archives, any referenceI saw was to taking them to HELP the CH. I'm wondering if anyone has had them "trigger" a cluster? I recently started them, and after 6 weeks, my headaches came. This may be my regular time to get them anyway, though. I've had them for about 12 years, but they were always diagnosed as "stress" h/a's. I've only been tracking them since '96, since I was properly diagnosed, and they have come 2 years apart, in August or September. I'm also asking about the pill bacause I take them not for birth control (I've been Fixed!), but to regulate my periods because I have endometriosis. Any thoughts or suggestions?
