I have recently noticed, immediately after my menstrual cycle my blood pressure is VERY high. It seems on the last day of the cycle during the night I wake up with a throbbing headache on one side of my head and eye and it will last 3days varying in pressure or irritation. For some reason I want to blame it on my new pills of which I'm not sure if it's the same kind I've been takin most of my life.
I have not been diagnosed to have high blood pressure and it only occurs after my menstural cycle. Yet it does run in the family.
