Post-pubertal girls experienced more frequent migraine attacks, compared with pre-pubertal and peri-pubertal girls, but there were no significant differences in duration of pain or accompanying symptoms, researchers reported in the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology. The findings, based on data involving 47 girls, also showed that peri-pubertal and post-pubertal girls in the follicular phase had a significantly higher frequency of migraine attacks, compared with those in the luteal phase, but had no differences in duration of pain, accompanying symptoms and aura between luteal and follicular phase.
