Is it normal for some women to feel nausious and / or throw up a week or so leading up to your period?
brandib01 responded:
for standard everyday periods i do not think that is a normal thing.
that is probably a good sign from your body that you need to listen to saying"go see a doctor"

i have that happen quite often but i have extreme pain with mine for about a week before and 1-1/2 to 2 weeks later but i have stage IV endo. so if you have not been diagnosed with any issues and not saying you have endo or anything else but it would be a good idea to get it checked out. just in case
