I'm on levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ed and got my period today i keep getting really bad headace on one side going down to my neck i've been on pill for awhile first time?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

See Dr.: There are certain types of headaches and neurological complications that women have that would prevent them from being good candidates for taking the birth control pill. I think you should discuss this headache with your doctor to make sure that you're not at risk for a stroke or pulmonary embolism. Any history of headaches or migraines need to be discussed with your doctor.
