I have been getting bad migraines for a while now. They included nausea, light sensitivity etc. and seemed to occur around my period. Well, I went for my annual pap and the doctor changed my birth control to Alesse and put me on Estrace (estrogen) to take during the placebo week of the pack. I'm kind of concerned because studies are showing an increase in breast cancer and other negative effects from taking estrogen. I guess I'd just like to know if anyone has experience with taking this combination. Is it safe? Did it help the migraines?
