Do Migraines Affect Fertility?

Is your neck involved with your migraine? One in four households in the U.S. has someone affected by migraine headaches. Women are more commonly affected by this debilitating condition, and frequent migraines for women can occur relative to their menstrual cycles. Migraines and fertility challenges can be related. 

Do Migraines Affect Fertility?

When preparing your body for conception, having migraine headaches can cause added and unnecessary stress to your system. Some people are unaware that migraine headaches can be helped with a specific and gentle type of chiropractic known as upper cervical care. The nerve tracts in the upper neck are directly linked with the centers in the brain that are responsible for hormonal regulation and the experience of headache pain. 

If you’re experiencing migraines or headaches around your menstrual cycle, it could be an indication that your upper neck is out of alignment. Getting that taken care of will reduce stress on your body and help with optimal function. 

Look at your alignment today: stand in front of a mirror, close your eyes and nod your head right, left, and up and down. When you feel centered, open your eyes. Is your head tilted? If it is, there is a solution! Contact Areté Chiropractic today for a consultation to get your body back in balance!
