    Menstrual nausea

    For the last two months I have been experinsing menstrual nausea but I haven't actually thrown up. So I want to know, how do I get rid of menstrual nausea felling natrually? Please help!

    Try spearmint tea. When I was a kid and would get an upset stomach, she would give me that and it helped. It also helped with my morning sickness when I was pregnant.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I'll try sperarmint tea & see if that helps. Thank you once again.

    Mint is a muscle relaxer and may help. Dry crackers (like with morning sickness) may help.
    Ginger is used for motion sickness and other dizziness. You can get tablets or you can get fresh ginger to chew on. The taste is an acquired taste, but if it helps -- it's worth it! I used it for seasickness in the past.

    When I was in high school back in the '60s I would get incredible cramps and bleed profusely including clots. I would have diahrea and be 'sick' the first couple days of my menstration. Luckily that went away. I believe they now have a name and treatment for that.

    I hope you find relief.

    ginger is for motion sickness/dizziness/nausea
    I've used it for seasickness in the past. You can take it as a tablet or you can buy fresh ginger 'bites' (?) at a co-op type place to chew on. The taste is an acquired one, but worth it! It did help me.

    When I was a teen/young adult I would get nauseated every month without fail during my menstrual cycle. My doctor prescribed phenergan. Since I am not a big pill popper, I only took it a few times, but it worked. I am in my 30's now and have changed my diet so I only the the nausea occasionally and it's no where near as bad as it used to be. Also, the nausea seemed to come on when my pain was really bad and I hadn't responded to it (remember I don't like taking pills), and it was cold. Then I'd vomit. Hope this helps.

    An_251269 posted:Get an evaluation of your hormones from an OB/GYN. I had a serious imbalance for years (was sick every month) before someone figured it out. Also, do a home pregnancy test (provided you have reason to do so). I've read that it's possible to have periods and still be pregnant. Good luck!

    Thanks for the suggestion.
