In brief: Migraine
Women suffer from migraine much more frequent than men.
One explanation is the changes of hormone related to the menstrual cycle. The theory is that estrogen level drops before the period and induces the migraine. There are treatments based on this theory, such as suppression of the ovulation, or estrogen supplement for the duration.
