Menstrual Migraine Among Spanish University Students.
Abstract: Purpose:This study sought to determine the prevalence of menstrual migraine among female university studentsat the Nursing Faculty of Ciudad Real and to determine possible risk factors.Design and methods:A cross-sectional observational study was performed using a self-report questionnaire. Twohundred and ninety-nine femaleuniversity students participated inthestudy;all were enrolledin the2017/2018academic year at the Faculty of Nursing. Participants were over the age of 18 years and without any diagnosedgynecological pathology. The main measurement tools were menstrual migraine between days−2 and +3 ofthe menstrual cycle, over the previous six cycles.Results:The prevalence of menstrual migraine was 45.15%, identifying the following possible risk factors: dys-menorrhea (OR 9.19; 1.62–6.28% CI), use of hormonal contraceptive methods (OR 2.60; 95% CI 1.30–5.20), men-strual irritability (OR 2.34; 95% CI 1.25–4.40), menstrual dizziness (OR 2.05; 95% CI % 1.12–3.75) and dailyconsumption of cola beverages (OR 1.85; 95% CI % 1.04–3.32).Conclusions:The prevalence of this problem is high among our population and the approach is complex.Practice implications: It is necessary to continue to research the pharmacological measures and methods of phar-macological pain relief as well as interventions directed at lifestyle modifications considering the potential riskfactors involved in menstrual migraine
