Question: only 18-headaches and hot flashes on period

 aprilmayjune - Mon Jun 20, 2005 10:12 pm

Hi, I'm 18 years old and lately I have been having extreme long lasting headaches and what I think are hot flashes, during my period. I've tried to find any information on this, but all that comes up is stuff about menopause. I'm only 18 so I'm assuming it is not menopause. Any help would be appreciated.

User avatar Are you on Depo Provera? It can cause the headaches and hot flashes.

I am 25 and have the same problem with hot flashes during my period. I was on the pill (Triphasil) for many years, but stopped taking it about 3 months ago. Is this just a result of my hormones trying to regulate themselves after being on the pill for so long?
