Cluster headache in women: clinical findings and relationship with reproductive

Cluster headache (CH) occurs rarely among women; for this reason only a limited
number of studies have been reported on the characteristics of the disease in
the female population. In this study, 82 females (age range, 14-72 years) with
episodic (69 cases) or chronic (13 cases) CH were investigated. The clinical
features of headache and the physiologic events related to reproductive life
were compared with those of various control groups. We did not find any
remarkable differences in clinical features between men and women. Unlike other
forms of primary headache, the course of CH does not seem to be modified by
menstruation, pregnancy, or puerperium. Finally, our data seem to confirm a
hypofertility trend, mostly after onset of CH, which had previously been noticed
by other authors.
