Not only some female clusterheads, female migraineurs also report that they seem to be spared during pregnancy, although I do remember dissenting voices from the migraine community.

Usually this change is chalked up to estrogens,
of which women have lots more than usual during pregnancy (and breast feeding).

But: the most important change during pregnancy is that a woman is no longer subjugated to the cycle, the wheel of fortune that fires off little bits of hormone A to wake up little bits of hormone B to warn hormone C that it will have to get hormone D to perform...

Instead of a cycle you get a straight line.

But if you will be the lucky one to miss out on clusters this second time round? It's anybody's guess, I am sorry to say.

You do have a good chance though. And there's always oxygen.

Walk in beauty, annemarie
