Disturbing my regular sleep schedule often stops my cycles is this common?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i wanted to share my two cents for you because it may help some! i know everyone is different but one year while dealing with a bad cycle i had a trip abroad (7hr time difference)i was only 3 weeks into my cycle and my headaches stopped as soon as i was in the new time zone. 

*i did have some shadows following days but the cycle just stopped!

it could be from high morale and good psychology of being abroad after 3 weeks of hell but scientifically the bodies clock is linked to CH so it would make sense to have a relationship with time

on my next cycle i will definitely experiment with skipping sleep etc...

I will be flying in 19 days and worried how the altitude will affect my ch's. How was it for you? Did you get any during the flight? Any after? If you did, were they relative to normal or more/less severe?  Thanks for sharing!

My CH cycles i usually get 1 a day always around 6 to 9 am ... the plane was 8 hrs the same day i did not get any attacks but nor did i sleep during the 8 hrs!

A study showed that ginger capsules can be as effective as sumatriptan i took one every 4 hours that day and I've been taking one capsule a day when im off cycle try it yourself and let me know if it works for you also!
