Consider Estrogen-Containing Contraceptives in Women With Menstrual Migraine

You'll have more opportunity to help women with chronic conditions choose hormonal contraception...due to updated CDC guidelines.

Consider medical conditions as one piece of the puzzle when choosing addition to efficacy, adherence, side effects, etc.

Weigh your patient's thrombosis and CV risk. Keep in mind, contraceptives with estrogen (combo OCs, patch, ring) have a higher risk than progestin-only forms...levonorgestrel IUD (Mirena, etc), implant (Nexplanon), depot medroxyprogesterone (Depo-Provera, etc), or the "minipill" (Nor-QD, etc). Plus the IUD and implant are most effective.
