Are Migraines Different in Women and Men?

Migraine headache (MHA) is a common neurologic disorder with prevalence greater among women than men in a 3:1 ratio. The difference is usually explained as being related to hormonal differences between the sexes. However, given that a significant number of men develop MHA, this explanation seems insufficient to fully explain the disproportionate ratio.

A new study that assessed the differences in experience of MHA between women and men also looked at MHA in women who were perimenstrual and nonperimenstrual. Click through the slides below for highlights of the findings.
