    Default Does anyone get neck pain & bad headaches on the sugar pills?

    Does anyone get bad headaches & neck pain on the sugar pills? I'm on Norimin & I'm getting that every cycle.

    I used to take Yasmin but I had a headache basically every day so I switched to Norimin. Now I don't have headaches every day, instead I just get them during my period week & the neck pain is the worst I've ever had.

    I've had issues with my neck forever but I can't tell whether it's actually related to my period/pill or just a coincedence.

    You could just skip the sugar pills for that week, and let your period happen, and see what effect that has.

    It's unlikely to be the sugar pills, unless your diet is normally extremely low sugar.

    You could also have a period holiday, and continue on to the next lot of active pills instead of taking the sugar pills. This might also help work out if it is a sign of your period.

    It's the hormone switch, (not caused by the pills but the rapid switch in which hormones are dominant).

    I actually often do just skip the sugar pills Bubbles, but I still have the problem.

    Chew the Mintie, is there anything I can do about it?

    You could skip your period, and only have it every 3 months or so.

    Maybe worth talking to a health professional interested in women's health.
