Headaches are the most frequent condition in humans. Some of the primary headaches e.g. migraine, tension type headache and chronic paroxysmal hemicrania are more prevalent in women than in men. Pregnancy, lactation, breast feeding, withdrawal, intensify some of the primary headaches. These periods supply to some diseases such as eclampsia or cerebral venous thrombosis, in which headache is one of the main symptoms. Differential diagnosis of those headaches are very important, because the pharmaceutical treatment is restricted. Menstruation and menopause periods also cause headaches.
