When I was 21 I started getting awful headaches that effected one of my eyes, the pain was horrific and I had it everyday to the point where my body couldn't take much more and I collapsed! I didn't sleep, hardly ate and the pain was always there, would build up and get worse at certain times in the day, I also lost vision for about 10 minutes once which scared me to death. Anyway I was admitted to hospital and they said it was cluster headaches.

When I went to renew my contraceptive pill my doctor told me I was at high risk of a stroke and I wasn't allowed any kind of contraceptive pill except the mini pill.

6 years on and thank god coming off the pill did the job, very rarely get those kind of headaches, my worry is my husband and I want to start a family and I've read that people who have problems with contraceptive pills are likely to have horrible morning sickness and headaches because of hormones!!

Has anyone experienced this and do you think my cluster headaches will come back?

Many thanks for any comments
