Nausea on my period

A few months ago I started getting really nauseous on the first day of my period. This has never happened before and I've had my period for 7 or 8 years now. What could be causing this and is there anything I can to do either reduce the nausea or make it stop?

I WAS JUST WONDERING IF NAUSEA IS THE ONLY SYMPTOMS YOU GET WHEN YOU FEEL THIS WAY? HAVE YOU TRIED A PREGNANCY TEST?

it could be hormone fluctuation. your doctor can run tests for you during certain points of your cycle to pinpoint this. you could also have a thyroid problem.

as far as treatment for nausea- I've found raspberry or peppermint tea to be helpful.

I've never had sex, so pregnancy isn't an option

I noticed that for my last two periods I have had nausea during it and was wondering what could be causing it.  Any new ideas out there?

You could be deficient in your B Complex Vitamins. B6 is really important for women as it regulates our hormone levels. It works at the liver to control a "balance" in your hormones. It can take 30-90 days of being on B6 for you to see the results. It can also help to prevent ovarian cysts which are quite common in women. I saw a naturopath for the and it worked. Also remember avoid salt and caffeine two weeks prior to your period. If I were you I would take a B-Complex to just to make sure you're not deficient in B12 as well.

Good Luck

I also forgot to mention that you can try ginger tea when you get the nausea as it helps with that...but the B6 will kick in....don't give up!

I used to do that ... I got my period in the 7th grade and didn't start feeling NAUSEA until Sophmore or Junior year of High school ... it went on until I got on the Pill ... As far as I know all was for me is that the pain I felt was getting so bad it was making me sick ... My cousin and I threw up when our periods came and come to find out She Drops 2 eggs a month and so do I ... Just a little insight for you ...  Birth control should help the NAUSEA

I get really nauseals also. This has been happening to be ever since I first started my period. I have a thyroid deficiency, but I am on medication to correct this - so I dont think this could be what causes my nausea. Also, I get very bad cramps. I think, like baby143 above, part of my nausea could be caused from the pain. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone has any other tips for curing the nausea I get during my period.

You should get checked out for endometrosis, that causes severe pain cramps stomach uspet, my mom had that, she had very heavy bleeding and got sick and horrible horrible cramps, she always missed worked the first few days of her period just curled up in her bed not being able to do anything. Your symptoms sound a lot like endometrosis, goodle it and you should make yourself an appointment its a serious conditon.

Today was the first day back on my period for this month. I started during my last class of the day which was around 1-1:30. Once I got home my cramps just escalated, and I was in that "crazy painful" kind of state. I tried to eat, but its really hard for me to when I'm cramping so bad, I didn't even eat that much at all today. Closer to the evening I started feeling really lightheaded and somewhat nauseous. I keep having the feeling that I need to throw up but it just doesn't happen. I used tampons and I think I'm starting to freak myself out, cuz now I'm awake at 3 in the morning for no reason. Except that my lower stomach muscles are kind of sore. Any ideas why ? Or what I should do ?
