Ovarian Cysts and Migraines

I have noticed that I get migraines before an ovarian cyst ruptures. I was wondering if there are hormones being released during the time prior to and during a rupture that could cause a migraine, or if it is just a coincidence?

I have not heard of that being common, but you might try this question on our Mirgraine Community as well. There is a health care expert there that might be able to answer that.
I hope that helps!
