Does anyone else feel nauseous during parts of their cycle?
Forgive the TMI, sorry. I've always felt a bit nauseous for a day or two before my period, a bit like when I'm pregnant.
Just had first period since ds2 was born 28 months ago, I had a short (24/5 day) cycle before I was pregnant last, and am now on day 16 of it.
I did have food poisoning on Sunday but that was a really different feeling, it was far more physical, I mean it was just like I needed to be sick - not this kind of sea sickness type of nausea.
I've been feeling like this for a few days now since that. It feels hormonal, related to 'down there' goings on as it were, in fact I basically feel as though I am pregnant. But I can't be unless I have been abducted by aliens, not having slept with anyone since about 3 years ago.
Could this be the usual hormones settling down into a cycle, or do I need to contact soemone from Nasa just to check. Afaik I am probably ovulating around now.
Another question - can you take anything for this? I have to go to London tomorrow and dreading feeling sick on the train.
I have this. I recently started writing it down and have pinpointed it due to ovulation. Only started after birth of DS, and sometimes got better when I take iron tablets. Not sure if this is placebo effect though, but it makes me feel like I am doing something.
I had my iron levels checked and was on the lower end of normal
Oh that is v helpful, thankyou. I may well be low on iron as still breastfeeding ds2 and he is having a fair bit due to teething etc. I think I need to up his proper food intake and cut down, also might start taking spatone again!!
Going to have to find a way of managing it, it's quite horrible isn't it. Might as well be pregnant again...
