Hi Jessica and welcome to HW. I dont normally post here but in the chronic pain forum. Saw your plea and thought maybe I can help. I dont post here because I suffered hormonal migraines my entire child bearing years but went untreated for most of them. Im now post-menopausal and nolonger have them, just more proof that they were due to hormones.
After my last child was born at 41 I had a partial hysterectomy and started on prem-pro and that's a HRT that contains both estrogen and progesterone which has been proven to both be necessary to prevent migraines.
Your best bet is to find a Dr that knows what they're doing, codeine causes rebound headache so tylenol 3 isn't a good choice of pain meds.
If you live near a University or Teaching hospital you should be able to find a Women's clinic or fertility clinics as they're better at treatment in hormonal changes and imbalances. Neurologists are going to treat the headache but not the cause.
Prevention is the best recourse here. Stopping them before they happen by treating the causes.
