This review aimed to scientific evidence alluding to the relationship between quality of life (QOL) and the phases of post-menopause and the influence of hormonal fluctuations of menopause in women with migraine. The terms quality of life, menopause, perimenopause, early menopause, late menopause, climacteric symptoms, hormones, estrogens, migraine, pathophysiology have been searched in MEDLINE (PubMed) and SciELO Brasil. It became clear the relationship of estrogens to the pathophysiology of migraine and this may be the key to explain possible differences in QOL between the phases of postmenopause. Lack of observational studies to evaluate possible differences in QOL between the phases of post-menopause and examine the role of migraine with any differences.
