Nausea during period?

I'm just wondering if anyone else experiences nausea during thier period? I do and it is particularly bad when I am cramping. It used to be only one maybe 2 days but the periods have been getting heavier, the cramping more days and with it the nausea is more often too. So far this period I am nauseated still on day 4.

Re: Nausea during period?

Sorry about your trouble. I have experienced this as well in this last 6 mos- 1 year. I finally got some tests done-pap, abdominal mri, the doc says nothing out of the ordiniary. My best suggestion is to have these tests done and see what happens. All the best to you. Isn't getting older such fun??

Re: Nausea during period?

Sometimes women who have such extreme periods actually have something like fibroids, cysts or polyps causing the problem. So, your first step should be to get an internal ultrasound from your gynecologist. She will be able to tell you whether there's anything in your uterus causing the excessive symptoms.

If there's nothing there, then you're just one of those women who have heavy crampy icky periods. You may get put on the pill to allegedly make your periods shorter and/or lighter (which should help with the nausea, maybe?). For me, I was on the pill forever and it never seemed to make my period any lighter or shorter, but I guess it works for some women? You may give it a try.

Thumbs up Re: Nausea during period?

I get really bad headaches with my period which cause nausea for me. I also have fibroids and endometriosis. I'd see my doctor and have internal check done, too.
