Is there a treatment for hormonal migraines?

Hormonal contraceptives, in pill or patch form, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which is used to treat menopausal symptoms, can either improve or worsen hormonal migraines.
Doctors also can adjust patients' dosage until birth control pills either relieve or have no effect on migraine symptoms.
Another approach, according to The Cleveland Clinic, is to prescribe a continuous pill - which eliminates the patient's menstrual period and prevents the patient from experiencing a drop in estrogen.
