Not Sure...
I get a migraine once a year, strange but true. I know it's coming on when my vision goes funny and I start to loose feeling in my first left hand then it moves up through my body. I then drink Migril, which takes a while but alleviates the pain. Last week the lucky day arrived and I felt what I thought was the symptoms I usually get, but was dizzy as well. I drank the Migril and about 15 mins later was in the toilet vomitting for 25 mins. What could have caused this as I have used it before and never had this reaction, is it possible that my body could reject things bad for me should I be pregnant? I've had a spot 2 weeks ago but started my period yesterday. I feel strangely different but it could be wishful thinking, how effective is the hpt when on the pill? Any advice would be appreciated.

If you are pregnant, the home test will show positive even if you are on the Pill. I don't think that the vomiting means that you are pregnant. It is a common feature of migraine.
