    My daughter gets violently ill after her cycle every month.
    An_248851 posted:
    My daughter has been getting violently ill within 24 hours of her cycle every month since January. Took to Dr and they put her on 'hormone therapy' i.e. birth control. Its only helping about 30-50%, she continues to vomit and shake for about 24 hours after her cycle is over. Every single month like clockwork. She has never been sickly and has never missed school. I need to find her a specialist or something. I've also tried every supplement and probiotic known to man. They did her blood and everything was great. HELP!!!! she is miserable.
