I am currently taken Micronor (norethindrone) while on topomax, just for preventative measures. However I am still getting bad menstrual migraines/ha during my cycle.

Work with your Dr. : Topamax (topiramate) can increase the metabolism of birth control pills and lessen their effectiveness at preventing ovulation and thus preventing menstrual migraines. Ideally you wouldn't have cycles on micronor. If you're cycling, you may need to also use condoms and spermicide. Your doctor may need to increase the dose of micronor, or use depoprovera to prevent ovulation to stop menstrual migraine. ...Read more

I take birth control regularly (within 1 hour of same time each day)lately I have been lightheaded/dizzy a lot with hot flashes. Pregnancy symptom??

Unlikely: If you take the pill regularly, you are not likely to be pregnant. If you missed your period by 4-5 days, you may do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
