Depends: There are several hypotheses to the cause of migraine and it is likely that migraine is a sex-conditioned inherited disorder (autosomal dominant in females and autosomal recessive in males). This is most likely to be so in the "typical" migraine- the mostly youth-onset, the provocation by birth control, induction by menstruation and self limitation after menopause. Thus a pos. Fam history is key. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What's the difference between an ablasion vs historectomy if i wanted ablasion will i still have periods i get hormonal migraines will those go away?
Very different: Ablation is a hysteroscopic procedure where the lining of the uterus is burned. This shrinks the endometrium and diminishes menstrual flow. There are no scars from this procedure and recovery is very fast. Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus.

Breast milk started drying up 3 years after weaning? Pituitary gland is normal. Will this cause hormonal changes and visual migraines?
No: I'm not entirely sure what you're asking here, as breast milk will usually go away after you're done breastfeeding. For it to go on 3 years after weaning is a bit unusual, but i'd be glad it did.
