Non-significant: The outcome in migraineurs when compared to controls is non-significant in cases of miscarriage, congenital anomalies, toxemia and stillbirth.
Aprox. 60-70 of migraineurs will improve during pregnancy. Medication effects on the growing fetus is still not clear. Therefore, non-pharmacological treatment would be the "ideal" approach.
