I took Feverfew for several weeks to help prevent my hormonal migraines. Big mistake. My menstrual cycle was completely thrown off balance (I spotted for 10 days before I got my period a whole week early). Since my migraines are hormonally related, the feverfew messed up my hormones and made me get 11 migraines in one month. I stopped it and I am still dealing with remnant migraine pain 8 days la ...

I had migraines a couple of times a week for decades. They were completely debilitating. My mother's doctor mentioned feverfew one day. I have been taking one tablet per day for the last 15 years and have not had a migraine since. Very occasionally, I get a mild sick headache but never migraines.

Comment:
I tried feverfew for my migraines which I have struggled with since childhood, I found that if I take two at the onset it usually would get rid of my migraine but if taken more than once (tried taking daily for a couple weeks) it brought on menstruation and I had a shortened cycle. Since my headaches are mainly hormonal that is very bad. So try it but if your a woman be cautious.
