Headache with pregnancy, which can be taken

Question: "Muffed constant headaches (15 weeks), how to escape? Endocrinologist said to drink just sweet tea and drinking magnesium. Does not save. "

Replies Igor Ivanovich Guzov , obstetrician-gynecologist, Ph.D., chief physician of the CIR.

Of course, the neuropathologist is needed here in order to figure out. Any headaches during pregnancy we estimate as a factor that requires to deal with it.

Sometimes there is a transient period when the entire vascular system adapts to pregnancy. And during pregnancy, sufficiently significant hemodynamic changes inside the body of the woman occur. Because, on the one hand, the tone of vessels falls, that is, the vessels are revealed, the peripheral resistance of blood flow drops. On the other hand, the cardiac emission increases, the shock volume, minute volume, increases the pulse rate.

That is, certain vascular changes inside the body are, and against the background of some predispositions sometimes there are in 15-17 weeks of headaches.

There is a variant of such - strong coffee. Previously, it was believed that he was contraindicated. Here you already understand that in the morning you can drink a cup of good coffee, because it often removes this symptoms. And you can add aspirin in the dosage of up to 100 milligrams.

That is, strong coffee or strong tea in the morning with the addition of this small tablet aspirin to 100 milligrams - can effectively remove this headache so that it does not torment you. Because if there is a painful state that you worry, it is very bad.

And if it does not help, then in the reserve there should be a preparation paracetamol, if you take non-steroidal anti -ols. In the West, it goes like acetaminophen. Paracetamol is considered the most proven and most secure.

In regular mode, it is impossible to take it certainly. You must always consult with your doctor. If we take our obstetric and gynecological discussions, colleagues communicate with each other and share experiences, just this question often rises. If a headache or some pain arises, what can you? If we start sorting out, nothing can not!

And now we recently had such a very good discussion where doctors participated from different countries and still came to the conclusion that after all, if the drug was used, the one that is best described and which is known. This is paracetamol.

It is believed that if the patient sometimes headache, she will, let's say, will drink paracetamol, the headache will disappear. The patient, at least relax, sleep, will do something around the house and so on. Because it does not happen worse when there is no lumen, and now this headache is strengthened, it is weakened and then goes ...

That is, this is such symptomatic therapy as a strong tea or strong coffee, combined with a non-steroidal any analgesic (this may be the low-volume aspirin or a small dose of paracetamol) is quite effective in order to reduce these vascular pain. But, most importantly, do not miss some kind of hidden pathology, which may be on this background.

I would pay attention to it

Headache for pregnancy

Headache in pregnant

  • general blood analysis - will show the presence of an inflammatory or infectious process;
  • general urine analysis - will indicate the presence of the pathology of the excretory system;
  • EEG - The study of the electrical activity of the brain will allow to identify the damage to the nervous system;
  • Ultrasound of the vessels of the brain - discovers vascular pathology;
  • MRI of the cervical vertebrae (except 1st trimester) - Show osteochondrosis.

After the full examination, the doctor selects an individual treatment scheme in accordance with the pregnancy and the presence of chronic diseases. An independent purpose of drugs is unacceptable and can lead to complications.

Migraine during pregnancy

Migraine is a headache that can cause strong suffering from a woman. It may be so strong that vomiting arises, weakness, partial loss of vision, the woman becomes better only in a dark room, isolated from all sorts of sounds. Headache during pregnancy associated with migraine, originally arises in one part of the head.

Migraine pain can last a few hours. If they are not treated, pains can last a whole day or even two. Migraine is a fairly unpredictable disease, especially during pregnancy, so you need to establish control over it.

Causes of migraine

The exact reason that causes headaches on the type of migraine, unknown. But the doctors believe that migraine, apparently, is associated with changes in the nerve receptors, the exchange of neurochemical substances and an increased influx of blood into the brain.

Researchers believe that excessively excited brain cells stimulate the emission of chemicals. These substances irritate blood vessels located on the surface of the brain. Irritation causes blood vessels to swell and stimulate pain syndrome.

Estrogen, as doctors believes, also plays an important role in the development of migraine. That is why during pregnancy, menstruation and in the period of menopause, the lack or oversupply hormone estrogen often causes headacles.

Diary of pregnant and migraine provocateurs tracking

A pregnant woman is far from always under the control of the doctor. Therefore, it is important for her to make a complete picture of his headaches. For this, experts recommend to keep a diary. It needs to record important information that will be done for a doctor a picture of migraine is clearer.

Hormonal changes during pregnancy - not the only thing that migraine can cause. Most women suffer due to a combination of stimuli, which cause headaches on the type of migraine. For example, stress, missed meals, absence or lack of sleep can cause migraine. And here's another important point: what migraine causes today can not be completely disturbed by a pregnant woman the next day.

Headache diary will help the future mom to track irritants and how pain repeats. This will help the doctor to make a decision about what treatment will work better to reduce specific pain symptoms. It will also help to recognize those stimuli, which can be avoided during pregnancy.

Every time a pregnant woman hurts, you need to record the following:

  1. Specific symptoms: where the pain is manifested, what is the character of this pain, is there other symptoms, such as vomiting or sensitivity to noise, smells, bright light
  2. When the headache begins and ends (time of day, duration)
  3. What food and drinks pregnant ate and saw for two days before migraine, were new foods in the diet
  4. Any environmental changes, such as travel, moving to a new place, change the weather,
  5. Any treatment that pregnant used herself helped whether it helped or made a headache even worse

Products that can provoke headache (migraine) in pregnant

  • Chocolate
  • Caffeine
  • Products that contain preservatives (sodium glutamate) and nitrates
  • Aspartame - Sugar substitute in chocolate, cakes and candies

Migraine diagnostics for pregnant women

Headaches caused by complications during pregnancy, the doctor will be able to better diagnose if it provides the information that was recorded in the diary. In addition, the doctor would be important to know if someone had suffered from migraine in the patient's family (Mom, Grandma).

CT and other tests that concern X-ray radiation during pregnancy are not recommended due to potential risk for the fetus.

Migraine drugs in pregnant women

Headache for pregnancy treatment suggests insension. If you are pregnant or plan to get pregnant soon, the doctor will first advise you to stay away from medication. Before you take, you will have to weigh the effect of the drug on your future child.

Many drugs against migraine during pregnancy should be avoided - because they are associated with congenital defects in children. Some other medicines can negatively affect the course of pregnancy and cause a complication from a woman. For example, some of them can cause bleeding, miscarriage or intrauterine delay in the growth of the fetus - a condition in which the uterus and fruit cannot develop normally. Nonteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin, can cause the risk of bleeding and miscarriage. There is also a risk of complications of blood pressure in a child if taking anti-inflammatory and painkillers in the third trimester of pregnancy. For example, aspirin can lead to excessive blood loss of the mother during childbirth.

Ergotamines are designed specifically for the treatment of migraine. However, the headache for pregnancy treatment with these drugs is not recommended. They increase the risk of innate child defects, especially if they take them in the first trimester of pregnancy. These drugs can also stimulate the cuts in the uterus and premature labor.

But in extreme cases, to remove a headache during pregnancy, you still need to take medicine. Anesthetic, which are called analgesics, can help alleviate strong headaches during migraine. Paracetamol is considered a low risk preparation for pregnancy. Most NSPIDs, including ibuprofen and naproxen, can also help, but risks after their reception during pregnancy is difficult to calculate.

Narcotic anesthetic pregnant women should be avoided. They cause a double risk of narcotic drug addiction - both Mothers and infants, if used strong painkillers for a long time.

Relatively safe drugs for migraine during pregnancy include antidepressants (for example, amitriptyline and fluoxetine). There is another class of drugs to eliminate migraine symptoms. They are called beta-blockers, they include preparations such as propranolol, atenolol, labetalol, which are relatively safe for pregnant women.

Preventive treatment of migraine

If the future mother has severe, constantly repeating pain attacks, prophylactic treatment can remove the headache during pregnancy or reduce the symptoms of headaches. If a woman is pregnant, always worth talking to the doctor before taking any medicine or the means of traditional medicine. Migraine prevention measures include the diary of its symptoms. If you find that some factors (lifestyle, food, drinks) provoke migraine attacks, you should avoid them.

Stress headache in pregnant women

The headache of the voltage in pregnant women is manifested as pain and discomfort in the head of the head, especially the hair of it, or neck. The headache of the voltage in pregnant women is usually associated with spasms and clips of the muscles in these areas.

Causes of pain voltage in pregnant women

Head pains of stress in pregnant women may arise at any age, but most often found in women of 30-40 years.

If the headache in a pregnant woman occurs two or more times a week for several weeks or longer, it is considered chronic. Chronic daily headache can be a consequence of non-treated primary headaches.

Head stress pains can be a reaction to stress, depression, head injuries, or elevated anxiety.

Any pregnant woman who leads to the headache of tension, needs to be discussed with the doctor. Maybe a woman just should change the type of activity, and the headache will be held by itself without drugs. These classes, provoking the pain pain, can be work at a computer, work with papers, with tools requiring eye stress and neck, for example, a long-lasting look into the microscope. Sleep in a cold room or a sleep in the wrong position can also cause tension headache.


Other stress headache triggers in pregnant women include:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • Caffeine (too much or sharply cancel it)
  • Cold, flu or sinusitis
  • Dental problems such as jaw compressions and teeth crossed
  • Eye tension
  • Excessive smoking
  • Fatigue or mental overvoltage

Head pains of stress in pregnant women can also arise if the woman has already experienced a migraine. Good news for pregnant women: tension headaches are not associated with brain diseases.

Symptoms of tension headache

  1. Squeezing the head, as if visets, as well as pulling headache
  2. Hurt both parts of the head
  3. It hurts only one part of the head or a certain point.
  4. Huricides the skin of the head, its top or back of the neck, pain can give in shoulders

The headache of the voltage can continue from 30 minutes to 7 days. It can be caused by stress, fatigue, noise or bright light.

Attention: Unlike migraine, headaches of stress usually do not cause nausea or vomiting.

Pregnant women with voltage headaches, as a rule, try to remove pain, massaging their heads or lower neck.

Diagnosis of tension headache in pregnant women

If the headache varies from mild to moderate, not accompanied by any other symptoms, from massage and after rash in a relaxed atmosphere, it can pass within a few hours. Then pregnant women do not need further examination. But if headaches of tension, despite the prevention, continue, need blood and urine tests, as well as examinations of the doctor and survey. It is also necessary to measure the pregnant blood pressure. Further examination will depend on the general picture of the disease - perhaps the doctor will send you to other specialists - Laura or orthopedic.


Medicines that can facilitate the headache of the voltage include

  • Paintal, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or paracetamol
  • Anesthetic, for example, but-shpa or spasmalgon
  • Miorlaxants, such as Tizandine (only on the recommendation of the doctor)

Remember that painkillers cannot remove the headache during pregnancy, but only facilitate the symptoms for a short period of time. After a while they can no longer work. Excessive use of painkillers is greater than during the week, can lead the headaches with pregnant women.

The best medicine from headaches during pregnancy is healthy sleep, fresh air and calm.

Clustered headaches

Cluster headache in pregnant women is a one-sided headache that can begin greatly and continue short. Pain symptoms can constantly and disturb pregnant all over toal.

Cluster headaches are not dangerous for life and usually do not cause irreversible changes in the brain of pregnant women. Nevertheless, they are chronic and often very painful, disturbing the quality of life of a pregnant woman. Sometimes the pain head can be so strong that the woman can do nothing, it is very bad.

Trusted-Source.[16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21]

The reasons

The headaches of a cluster nature are four times more common in men than women. Nevertheless, pregnant women suffer from them in 20% of cases. Scientists do not know exactly what cluster headaches are assumed, it is assumed that this is due to the sudden emissions in the blood of hormone hormones and serotonin. The section of the brain - hypothalamus - sensitively reacts to this and transmits a pain signal through pain receptors.

Trusted-Source.[22], [23]

Causes of cluster attacks

  • Alcohol and smoking
  • Big height (for example, airfare)
  • Bright light (including sunlight)
  • Emotional tension
  • Excessive heat (hot weather, hot baths)
  • Products with high nitrite content (for example, bacon and canned meat, smoked sausage)
  • Medicine

Trusted-Source.[24], [25], [26], [27]

Symptoms of cluster headaches in pregnant women

Cluster headache begins as a strong and sudden headache. Headache most often amazes a pregnant woman in 2-3 hours after she falls asleep. However, cluster headache may occur during wakefulness. It usually manifests itself at the same time day.

Cluster headache most often occurs on one side of the head. It can be described as:

  • Burning
  • Acute
  • Sustainable
  • Pain may occur in the eyes, in the eye day, in the area around the eyes.
  • Head pain can spread on one side of the face from Neck to the temples
  • Eyes and nose on the same side as headache, can also suffer. It can be:
  • Swelling under the eyes or around the eyes (they can influence both eyes)
  • Tear
  • Red eyes
  • Rhinitis (runny nose) or unilateral nasal congestion (on the same side as a headache)
  • Flushed face

Duration and frequency of cluster headaches in pregnant women

Headaches usually last from thirty minutes to two hours, and the average headache duration is 45 minutes. Sometimes strong headaches may pass in just ten minutes, and in some rare cases, headaches can last within a few hours. The pain can quickly enhance, reaching a maximum within 5 -10 minutes.

Headaches are called so because attacks - "clusters" continue for four to eight cycles per week. The frequency of attacks varies depending on the characteristics of each pregnant. Some women experience six cases of strong headaches per day, while others are just one cluster headache per week. In 85 percent cases, headaches will disturb the pregnant woman at the same time day during the entire cycle.

Some studies show that the older woman, the greater the risks that it will suffer during pregnancy from chronic strong headaches.

Cluster headaches may occur 1 time per day for a month, alternating with periods without pain (episodic headache), or can be repeated during the entire period of pregnancy (chronic headache).

Trusted-Source.[28], [29], [30], [31], [32]


Your attending physician can diagnose this type of headache by asking questions about symptoms and your overall health.

If a medical examination is carried out during an attack of pain, it will be easier to determine the nature of the occurrence.

MRI of the head may be needed in extreme cases to exclude other causes of headaches in a pregnant woman.


During pregnancy, many pregnant drugs are taking unsafe, so the doctor may advise you to limit ourselves to anti-inflammatory pills or herbs, as well as painkillers. Accessories and aromatherapy, head massage and neck can also be used.

Pregnant can be appointed oxygen cocktails, peace, rest, healthy sleep.

Headache during pregnancy in 1 trimester is a dangerous symptom at which it is important to determine its cause. It can occur in the absence of serious disorders, as a result of stress or fatigue, and passes after rest. If it is often manifested with high intensity, it is worth contacting the doctor and do not wait until it disappears on your own. The clinical brain institution offers diagnostic and headache treatment programs that are selected individually and include all necessary research.

Causes of headaches during pregnancy in 1 trimester

Headaches during pregnancy in the first trimester is a frequent phenomenon. During this period, they can even manifest themselves for those women who have not previously complained about this symptom. Pregnancy - stress for the body, so the first 3 months may be accompanied by bad well-being. Headache may occur for the following reasons:

  • nervous, emotional tension, experiences;
  • intensive physical activity and chronic fatigue;
  • sleep disorders, insomnia;
  • improper nutrition, consumption of a large amount of coffee, salt, fried and flour dishes, as well as overeating;
  • Insufficient physical activity.

Headaches that occur in the absence of organic disorders often pass independently. Doctors recommend complying with a schedule of sleep and physical exertion, choose healthy food and abandon products that can cause migraine attacks. This list is individual, but often coffee, greasy dishes and sweets in large quantities.

Hormonal changes

Headache in the first trimester of pregnancy is often caused by hormonal restructures. During this period, the level of progesterone is sharply increasing - it is necessary to prepare the body for pregnancy. It causes a decrease in the reactivity of the immune system, due to which the fruit is not defined as a foreign body and does not turn back. The progesterone is as elevated as much as possible in the first trimester, while it may cause swelling, water-salt impairment and strong headaches.

In the first trimester, an increase in the level of estrogen is also observed. These hormones cause acceleration of metabolic processes, as well as reduce the tone of the vessels. These substances are normal to reduce pressure and reduce the manifestations of hypertension, but in hypotension can trigger the intake of headaches.


Early toxicosis is considered a normal manifestation of pregnancy and arises from many women, but in some cases requires more detailed diagnosis by the doctor. It represents the reaction of the immune system to the appearance of the embryo - it is perceived by the body as an alien protein. The exact cause of the development of toxicosis is unknown, but there are several theories of its origin. The first is associated with hormonal restructuring during pregnancy, which cause digestive disorders and bouts of headaches. The second explains the deterioration of the well-being adaptation of the immune system to changes in the body. There is also a neuro-reflex theory: in the first trimester there is an activation of some subcortex centers of the brain, which are responsible for the manifestation of protective reflexes, including the center of vomiting.

Toxicosis is manifested by a complex of characteristic symptoms:

  • disruption of digestion, frequent nausea and vomiting;
  • increased sensitivity to light, smells and other stimuli;
  • headaches, dizziness;
  • With a pronounced stage, a decrease or an increase in blood pressure, heart rate disorders, acetionalura.

In the first trimester of pregnancy, toxicosis is a normal response of the body. The second trimester of its manifestation is on their own. To the doctor should appeal if the toxicosis is accompanied by constant headaches, weight loss and other dangerous manifestations. It is also not considered the norm in the Late time - in this case, the doctor may decide on inpatient observation.


Attacks of acute headache, which occurs without a certain reason is a migraine. It manifests itself in men and women of any age and is not associated with organic violations. Migraine may be associated with brainwater failure and other factors. The attacks are often provoked by hormonal imbalance, external stimuli, stress and physical exertion, as well as certain weather conditions. Headache may occur suddenly, but many patients first show the symptoms of the foremen (migraine aura). They include:

  • change of sensitivity to light, smells;
  • violation of digestion, nausea and vomiting;
  • worsening hearing, noise in the ears;
  • numbness of the upper extremities, reducing the sensitivity of the fingers.

The aggravation of migraine can be caused by a change in hormonal balance during pregnancy. In this case, the doctor's observation is recommended. To eliminate headaches, a systematic reception can be needed against migraine.

Blood pressure and headache during pregnancy in 1 trimester

One of the causes of the headache that can be exacerbated during pregnancy is an increase in blood pressure (hypertension). It occurs with various vascular diseases, including atheroscleorosis, inflammatory processes, weaknesses of vascular walls and other pathologies. Hypertension is dangerous with an increased load on the walls of the arteries, as a result of which they become less elastic and worse adapt to blood pressure drops. As a result, a breaking of blood vessels can be observed, the consequences of which depend on the localization of the damaged area.

With an increase in blood pressure, the following symptoms arise:

  • acute pulsating headache, which can concentrate in temples or spread to the entire surface of the head;
  • heart rate disorders;
  • Redness of the skin;
  • nausea and vomiting;
  • Nervous manifestations, including exacerbation of the reaction to bright lighting and odors, changing the skin sensitivity.

During pregnancy, it is also possible to exacerbate hypotension - decrease in blood pressure. Its reasons include impaired nervous regulation, vascular disease, vitamin deficit, stressful situations and heart pathology. The attacks of the disease are manifested by weakness, drowsiness, nausea and headache, as well as the pallor of the skin and mucous membranes. Many patients are diagnosed with chronic hypotension. In the first trimester of pregnancy, its aggravation may be observed, due to the intense blood supply to the placenta. In this case, it is recommended to monitor well-being, comply with a diet-recommended diet, recreation schedule and physical exertion.

Blood glucose jumps

Hypoglycemia is a dangerous state at which a decrease in blood glucose levels is observed. This element is necessary for the normal flow of biochemical processes at the cellular level, and especially important during pregnancy, for the full nutrition of the placenta. The glucose deficiency leads to the insufficiency of the energy exchange, as a result of which there is a sharp deterioration in well-being. Frequent hypoglycemia attacks are dangerous both for the health of the patient and for the development of the fetus. They are accompanied by the following signs:

  • Magnifying headache, dizziness;
  • decrease in blood pressure, pallhery;
  • nausea, violation of digestion;
  • swells of mood, irritability, drowsiness;
  • With a sharp decline in glucose levels, fainting is possible.

Hyperglycemia is the excess of the permissible level of blood sugar. It is manifested by a characteristic complex of symptoms, which include weight loss, headaches, drowsiness, increased need for liquid and frequent urination. It may occur after overeating, due to stressful situations and irregular physical exertion, is also diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. In case of violations of the endocrine system, pregnancy must be under the control of the doctor, if necessary, under the condition of systematic reception of medicines for controlling glucose in the blood.

Other reasons

Strong headache during pregnancy in 1 trimester is not a disease, but a manifestation of a number of violations. They may be associated with the reaction of the immune system, hormonal changes, stress, nervous and emotional voltage. However, it can also be a sign of dangerous violations and chronic diseases that affect pregnancy and need permanent observation. So, during pregnancy in the first trimester, the head hurts for the following reasons:

  • neurological diseases;
  • violation of the cerebral circulation and the appearance of areas of ischemia (oxygen deficiency in tissues);
  • chronic renal or liver failure;
  • Cardiovascular diseases;
  • consequences of injuries in the field of back and neck, brain concussion;
  • pathology of the endocrine system, hormonal imbalance;
  • Stroke, aneurysm and other acute states.

If there is nauseous and hurts a head during early pregnancy, it can be considered an indicator of the norm. Such an organism reaction occurs with the increased sensitivity of the immune system, but the second trimester passes, after the adaptation period is expired. However, it is important to monitor well-mindedness and contact the doctor when manifesting other alarming symptoms: pressure jumps and blood glucose levels, pain in the heart, fainting.

Diagnostic methods

Doctors of the Clinical Institute of the Brain argue: if in the first trimester of pregnancy hurts a head, it is worth a survey and determine the cause of this state. For effective treatment with the use of a minimum amount of drugs, accurate data on injuries and chronic diseases are needed, the exact characteristic of symptoms, as well as test results. The doctor is important to report, what factors provoked a headache, which areas it affects and what intensity is manifested. If it is constant, accompanied by a violation of the cardiovascular system and other hazardous symptoms, the following examination methods are assigned:

  • blood tests - they will help determine the presence of inflammatory processes, the features of the hormonal balance, the level of glucose and vitamins, as well as other important indicators;
  • frequent dimension of blood pressure with maintaining results;
  • Doppler - Examination of the vessels by the ultrasound method;
  • Ultrasound of the abdominal and heart organs, to eliminate sharp and chronic diseases.

Diagnostics of headaches during pregnancy is difficult due to the inaccessibility of some techniques, which may adversely affect the process of forming the fetus. So, in the first trimester, X-ray radiation is dangerous to health, therefore radiography is appointed only by decision of the attending physician. It is also undesirable to conduct magneto-resonant tomography in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, since it is during this period that the main tissues and fetus organs occurs. If symptoms do not pose a danger to the life of the mother, the diagnosis of headaches are delayed before delivery.

Headache treatment methods

The attending physician will tell you what drugs can be taken from the headache pregnant in the first trimester. In the low dosage, drugs based on paracetamol (solpadein), drootaverine (but-shp) are allowed. However, their application should be coordinated with the attending physician, since the body's reaction to the use of painkillers and antispasmodics is individual. Doctors of the Clinical Institute of the Brain recommend several techniques that will reduce the manifestations of headaches without harm to the body during pregnancy.

  1. Proper nutrition, taking into account the increasing need for vitamins, microelements, carbohydrates and nutrients - the basis of the prevention and treatment of headaches in the early periods of pregnancy. It should be abandoned with fatty and fried dishes, sweets, fast food. The basis of the diet should be cereals, low-fat varieties of meat and fish, vegetables and fruits. If necessary, as well as the results of blood tests, it may be necessary to receive vitamin complexes.
  2. Massage is one of the methods of eliminating vascular spasms. Headaches can be caused by a violation of cerebral circulation as a result of squeezing of vessels at the neck level. Muscle relaxation and blood flow restoration leads to a noticeable improvement in well-being.
  3. An individually selected graph of physical activity is important during pregnancy. From intensive loads should be abandoned, but it is necessary to give daily time to walk in the fresh air. In their absence, the likelihood of exchange disorders increases, worsening blood circulation and insufficient oxygen intake to the cells and tissues of the brain.
  4. An important method of prevention and treatment of headaches is regular control of blood tests. At home, arterial pressure indicators and glucose levels can be measured. It is also important not to forget about scheduled surveys.

In 1 trimester from headaches, pregnant women are not recommended to take drugs without coordination with the attending physician. However, it is also dangerous to tolerate it - it can lead to a deterioration in the blood supply to the brain, fainting, the appearance of inspections of ischemia, as well as to malfunction of the placenta. As a result, risks are increasing not only for the fetus, but also for the health of the mother, the probability of heart attack and stroke increases. The clinical institution of the brain offers individual programs for diagnosing and treating headaches, including on the initial period of pregnancy. Here you can go through a full examination and get a consultation of specialists of a narrow profile, as well as get recommendations, as efficiently and safely get rid of pain without health risk during pregnancy.

It is impossible to submit a person who has never experienced headaches. According to statistics, women experience this type of pain 20% more often than men. Specialists advise not to endure headaches, as it worsens the quality of life and reduces performance.

At the moment there is a large selection of drugs that are able to effectively get rid of headaches. But how to be pregnant women, if the majority of medicines can not be applied during the period of tooling the child? It has been proven that many drugs can cause certain violations of the child's development, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy (up to 13 weeks).

Let's try to figure out which drugs can be taken pregnant women to effectively get rid of headaches and do not affect the development of the fetus.

Often, the cause of pain can be a spasm of the vessels of the brain, the muscles of the neck or the occipital part of the head ..

In such cases, the means that in their composition contains substances, relaxing vessel walls. Due to this, there is an increase in the diameter of the vessels, the blood circulation is normalized.

It is important to know that this group of drugs is effective with tension headaches.

Antispasmodics are the safest group of painkillers during pregnancy.

"But-shpa" ("DROTAVERIN") is a drug that promotes the relaxation of smooth muscular cells. This drug affects not only the wall of the vessels, but also on the cells of the intestine, the biliary system, the urinary system, the uterus. It is for this reason "but-shp" successfully applied during pregnancy with an increased tone of the uterus.

Thanks to numerous studies, it was revealed that this medicine does not have a negative effect on the fruit, does not cause malformations.

Application must be in permissible therapeutic doses, as the dosage excess may result in side effects:

  1. Reduced pressure (up to a fainted state).
  2. Violation of cardiac rhythm (heartbeat).
  3. The appearance of a tendency to constipate (by reducing the intestinal peristals).

Contraindication to use is the individual sensitivity to the active substance, hypotension from 90/60 mm Hg.st. and below, tachycardia from 110 ° C / min.

Forbidden to use during pregnancy, the combined spaskemalgesic products, which, in addition to the antispasmodic component, contain another active ingredient - analgesic. These drugs include "Spasmalgon", "Andipal".

One of the reasons for the appearance of headaches is to increase pressure. For pregnant women, this situation is most relevant for a number of reasons:

  • an increase in circulating blood during gestation almost 40%;
  • The development of gestosis for which the pressure increase is characterized, as well as a fluid delay in the body;
  • reinforced load on the cardiovascular system;
  • The aggravation of existing chronic kidney diseases, hearts.

Increased pressure is manifested by the pains most pronounced in the occipital region. Perhaps the feeling of gravity in the head, the flashes "flies in front of the eyes."

Among the allowed hypotensive drugs of the central action are isolated ("SUPPORT"), the solution of "magnesium sulfate" ("Magnesia").

"Support" affects alpha-adrenoreceptors located in the brain.

It can be applied during the period of having a child for a number of reasons:

  1. There is no negative impact on the development of the fetus.
  2. Preserved adequate uterine-placental blood flow.

"Magnesia". When a pregnant headache associated with high pressure, good effectiveness has Magnesium sulfate solution. In addition, it is a tocolic (reduces the tone of the uterus), contributes to the removal of fluid from the body (at edema).

This medicine is successfully applied in obstetrics, it is especially necessary if pregnant gestosis has, as it affects many stones of pathogenesis.

The main method of administration is intravenous infusion, less often intramuscularly

If necessary, the tableted grades of magnesium ("Magnerot", "Magnelis", "Magne-B6") are prescribed. Their action is manifested gradually, the duration of therapy is from 10 to 30 days.

This drug group is capable of getting rid of moderate intensity without harm for the state of the fetus.

The drug penetrates through the placental barrier, but according to the conducted Paracetamol research does not have toxic and teratogenic effects (no development anomalies) on the fruit. It should be remembered that the reception of this drug must be limited.

Analogues of Paracetamol are "Panadol", Efferoralgan.

A group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory funds is not recommended for use during gestation. However, if the head hurts very much, and other drugs do not help, then follow the following rules:

  1. Avoid the use of equipment based on analgin as the most toxic of all drugs of this group.
  2. It is not recommended to take combined analgesics that contain several components that eliminate pain. These include: "Pentalgin", "Kaffetin", "Salpadein".
  3. It is better to prefer drugs with one active substance (preferably based on paracetamol).
  4. Try not to take two or more tablets in one day, as well as avoid long-term reception.
  5. If possible, avoid taking tablets in the first trimester when the formation of organs and fetus systems occurs.

Given the small selection of drugs to relieve headaches during pregnancy, you should give preference to alternative methods.

It is proved that the fingers from the frontal part of the head to the occipital (only in one direction) contributes to the elimination of the stagnation of venous blood in the sinus of the brain. This is explained by the presence of vein-perforant on the surface of the head that are associated with venous sinus.

Such massage for 15 minutes can significantly reduce pain syndrome, up to its full elimination.

For details on how to get rid of headaches with massage, look in the video:

Especially effective if the head hurts due to the osteochondrosis of the cervical spine. After all, there are vertebral artery in the cervical department, the compression of which can cause painful pain in the head.

The impact on certain points of our body leads to the activation of some physiological processes. Thus, with a headache, an easy pressing on the temporal areas on both sides, lightweight arraying movements clockwise can be used.

Council of the doctor

Neck massage can be done only in the form of easy impact on the muscles, stroking, in whose case is not strong. First, movements with intensive pressure will give pain in the muscles. Secondly, there is always the likelihood of the presence of hernia, the massage at which is done very carefully.

Remove the headache will help pressing the following points: at the base of the inside edge of both eyebrows, the center of the Absorption Arc (the place of the outdoor nerve), the middle of the bridge, the point between the base 1 and 2 fingers of the brush of both hands. For each point you need to gently push, 2-3 minutes.

Effectively drink a cup of strong tea with a reduced pressure-tailed headache. Coffee drinks should not be used during pregnancy, as caffeine may cause heartbeat. With caution with diabetes and gestational diabetes mellitus, which is common among pregnant women.

If a pregnant woman often hurts a head, she needs to establish his day of the day. Normalization of sleep and rest is very important. For example, a walk before bed for 15 minutes is very useful. Pains will be much less disturbing, if you pay tribute to your attention.

Contributes to relaxation and improved blood circulation in the body.

Do not get involved in aromatherapy, as some essential oils can cause an allergic reaction.

The reasons due to which the head may be sowed, at the moment, not less than 50 is known. During pregnancy, head pains of stress are most relevant, as well as arising from the pressure lift (for example, with severe gestosis).

Despite such a wide range of drugs available in the pharmacological market, during pregnancy their choice is extremely limited. Therefore, during the baby tooling, before drinking this or that medicine, it is necessary to find out the cause of headaches.

Unsystemic receiving tablets can negatively affect the development of the baby. We must not forget about the serious causes of headaches (vascular aneurysm, pathological convulsion, volume formation of the brain). To understand the mechanisms of pain syndrome, as well as the prescribing the necessary drug will help consult with a gynecologist and therapist.

Headache is an actual problem for many people. According to statistics, with this unpleasant symptom, at least once in his life, each person came across, not even with chronic diseases, injuries and other pathologies. The pain syndrome can manifest itself with different intensity, but regardless of this, it causes discomfort, reduces performance and worsens the quality of life. Tablets from headaches are a popular and affordable tool that is perhaps every home first aid kit.

Many drugs are released without a recipe and are familiar to several generations of our compatriots. At the same time, there are no universal tablets from headaches, since this symptom can accompany more than 40 pathologies. In order to determine the cause of pain syndrome, you need to consult a doctor.

Causes of headaches

Pain syndrome may differ in character, localization, distribution, duration and other characteristics. The doctor has a diagnosis in each case, relying on a set of many factors that may indicate a disease or a different disease. For example:

  • sharp pains can appear in spasms of brain vessels or cervical osteochondrosis;
  • Pulsing pains may indicate migraine, otitis, violation of the vascular system, glaucoma and a number of other diseases;
  • Prolonged pains usually appear when meningitis, encephalitis, tuberculosis, as well as with severe lesions of the nervous system.

In addition, with different diseases, pain syndrome may have a certain localization:

  • In migraine, some pathologies of the eyes, inflammation of the nasal sinuses, pneumonia pain concentrates in the forehead and surveillance;
  • With hypertension, osteochondrosis, the tension of the muscles of the neck and head, neuralgia of the occipital nerve - in the nape region;
  • with elevated intracranial pressure, flu, angina, pneumonia, hyimorite - in the forehead and temples;
  • In migraines, spasms of the muscles of the neck and head, the appearance of a tumor - in the area of ​​the pattern.

Call headaches can not only diseases, but also frequent stress, bad habits, sleep mode disorders, meteo-dependence. In women, painful syndrome may be associated with the menstrual cycle, in men - with overwork, in children with colds, in the elderly - with violations of the cardiovascular system and neurological pathologies. The pathological condition may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting, increasing temperature, chills, dizziness and other symptoms. In each case, an individual selection of medicines is required.

Headaches can be caused by various reasons. In some diagnoses, the patient requires urgent hospitalization. Thus, independent diagnosis is unacceptable, and the uncontrolled use of drugs from headaches may aggravate the disease. Anesthetics must be selected by the attending physician in accordance with the diagnosed diagnosis.

Basic groups of preparations from headaches

This is an extensive group of drugs that will be bored with pain syndrome, without causing the effect of anesthesia.

Again to feel the facilitation of the patient will help the reception of antispasmodic drugs that contribute to the restoration of blood circulation in the tissues. As in the case of analgesics, it is recommended to apply these tablets as a single aid, and not on an ongoing basis.

What drugs are attracted to spasmolitics?

Two large groups of spasmolytic drugs are distinguished:

1. Motropic antispasmodics. Preparations from this group can be assigned at elevated arterial pressure.

And then there is a lawsager question, than to stop painful syndrome, because many drugs during the period of having a child are prohibited. In this article we will talk about what medicines from headaches are allowed during pregnancy.


Paracetamol is one of the preparations for choosing to relieve other or other localization syndrome, including headaches during pregnancy.

During numerous studies, the teratogenic effect of this medication was detected. Doctors allow this tool throughout the entire period of gestation, however, it recommends that it is consistent with its use in the first and third trimester.

Many women are experiencing headaches during pregnancy. Below we will tell about what reasons she can arise and how to get rid of it, without causing harm to himself and the child. By the way, the treatment of headaches in the first, second and third trimesters can differ significantly.

Why is the head of the head during pregnancy: the main reasons

With Cefalgia (headache) during pregnancy, each fifth woman is familiar - the statistics says so. Most often, Cefalgia makes itself felt in the first trimester, although some pregnant women suffer from her at later. There are so many different reasons for headaches - ranging from insignificant and temporary problems to serious chronic pathologies. Let's try to figure it out - why the head may hurt during pregnancy and what needs to be done.

The main causes of headaches during pregnancy are:

  • Changes in hormonal background, which are absolutely natural for the body of pregnant; At the same time, the level of estrogen and the hormone of pregnant progesterone increases, which affects the tone of the vessels; If the level of estrogen (in particular, the estriot) increases beyond the limits of the norm, this may cause vessel spasms, as indicated by headache and dizziness;
  • Reaction to atmospheric weather phenomena: with magnetic storms, cloud weather on the eve of rain or snow can occur blood pressure; With its sharp decrease or increase and headaches arise;
  • Strong loads and overwork;
  • stress or emotional experiences;
  • Hunger or thirst;
  • finding in stuffy or poorly sprocket rooms;
  • Sleep problems: it can be both insomnia, and too long (more than 10 hours) sleep;
  • Disorders of the posture due to overpressive body, volume stomach during pregnancy (as a rule, such a problem occurs in late terms);
  • consumption of certain products, especially - containing caffeine (strong tea, coffee, large portion of chocolate);
  • Some states and diseases: Vegeth-vascular dystonia, viral diseases (flu, ORVI), toothache, osteochondrosis and other pathologies arising in cervical vertebrae.

How and when a headache may appear in pregnant

Cefalgia can manifest itself in the most different sensations: some of them will resemble sharp and sharp pain, some kind of stupid or new. Depending on the symptoms, it is possible to guess what caused pain.

  • Pain that arises due to voltage It is distinguished by monotony: it is a difficult feeling that the head is strongly pulled by the bandage. With such a pain, there is a stressful state in the neck and nape (you can put these places and clearly determine where the pain points are located), as well as in the zones and eyes. Such a state may be accompanied by nausea, but without vomiting. Discomfort is usually felt for half an hour, maximum - two hours. The cause of stress pain becomes either banal fatigue - physical or intellectual, or strong stress, accompanied by nervous exhaustion.
  • Migraine It has a special difference from other types of headaches - with it there is a pulsation in a certain part of the head, severity and pressure in the eye area. In this case, often arise not just problems with vision, but even hallucinations (visual or auditory). If you try to move a little to get rid of the symptoms, then their manifestation will increase. Sometimes migraine may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Symptoms are held for quite a long time: from a few hours to several days. The cause of migraine is irritation of nervous plexuses and nodes in the neck and head. It may arise due to pathologies in the cervical separator, diseases of the brain vessels, problems arising in the zone of the apparent nasal sinuses.
  • Vascular headache , as well as migraine, is distinguished by ripples in a certain part of the head - the occipital, temporal, dark. The cause of such pain may be jumps of blood pressure, vegetative-vascular dystonia, the problems of the functioning of the cardiovascular system. With hypertension of the brain vessels, spasms are narrowed and experiencing, as a result of which the pain symptom occurs. If a woman is experiencing a hypertensive crisis, then it may have other symptoms - a formation in the zone of the nasolabial triangle, a feeling of gravity in the head, weakness.
