Abstract

In this case-control study, women with migraines with aura using combined hormonal contraception had six times the odds of experiencing ischemic stroke compared to women without migraines not using combined hormonal contraception. Use of combined hormonal contraception among women with migraines without aura was not associated with an increased risk of stroke over baseline.
