Can hormonal imbalances cause migraines and severe moodiness? and is birth control the best way to help?

Migraines & Hormones: I have had many cases over the years where patients link hormonal imbalances, menstruation episodes, and other hormonal conditions to their migraines; as well as moodiness. Regarding medication, you may want to ask your PCP about birth control and other potential medications for your headaches.
