    You are meant to see your doctor and stop taking the pill immediately if you experience migraine headaches for the first time or more frequent unusually severe headaches. Most likely if you didn't normally have headaches all the time before taking microgynon, your doctor will give you a script for a different type of the pill. Do not continue to take the pills hoping it will pass without first seeing a doctor. This information will be on the consumer medicine information leaflet that comes in your box of pills.

    two days after I stop taking my pills each month I get a hugely debilitating headache that puts me out of action for a whole day! it's awful and nothing makes it go away, but that is just one day. You should see a doctor if it is a continuous headache
