are my birth control pills causing headaches?

Posted by rubyred18

For the last two months i've been having headaches literally everyday, and two of those were severe migraines.

 i've been to the neurologist who put me on some a preventative medication but i'm starting to think that maybe the cause of my headaches are the bc pills.  i still am having headaches wile on my meds. i'm going to call next week and request an mri. and i want to stop taking my bc pills cold turkey.

 i've been on the pill for 8 years without a problem  and i'm so confused as to what is causing these headaches everyday. the bc pills are the only med i take (besides now the ones for the headaces). i can't think of anything else that has changed in my life to cause them.
