Migraine : No real contraindication while using with hormones. If you do have aura and risk factors such as hypertension, smoking etc discuss with your neurologist.

It is safe: The advantage of Amerge (naratriptan) in addition to its longer half-life, is its mild side effect profile which makes it more acceptable to patients who are unable to tolerate the side effects of sumatriptan. The advance age may be associated with a decreased prevalence of migraine. The onset of physiologic menopause (natural menopause) improved migraine in most women. Take care.
