Headache before and during period?

I am using Ginette 35 as contraception

I have noticed that I get massive headaches a week before and during my period

Is this possible, and why does it happen?

It is possible that you are experiencing water retention and a light diuretic taken a week before menstruation might alleviate your symptoms.
