According to a study from the American Headache Society, people tend to have migraines between the ages 25-55, but in fact, headaches can occur at any age.
In women, headache is a frequently reported side effect of hormonal contraception and a main reason why birth control is stopped. According to the World Health Organization and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, hormonal contraception may be prescribed to ladies with migraine headaches only if they don’t experience aura, don’t smoke, are younger than 35, and are otherwise healthy.
