    Hi thembeka88,

    I am sorry that you are going through this, but you are not alone. Here is a discussion I found that started a few years ago and is still somewhat active that you might find helpful.

    A number of our members in the discussion wrote in that their doctors suggested they were allergic to the increase in hormones that accompanies your period. This might be a good thing to discuss with your doctor.

    You might also try posting your discussion on our Women's Health board. I hope that you are able to find some relief soon!
