Since I have started my periods, I always have sever nausea the night before and then for the whole time my period lasts, it gets a lot worse at night, my periods last between 12-14 days, due to the nausea, I don't have much of an appetite during this time, i also get a very bad stomach, cramps and an upset bowel, it makes me feel very weak, shaky and drained, my doctor says there's nothing wrong with me, he hasn't even ran any tests. Is there anything I can do?? Any idea whats wrong with me, I can't take it :( I'm only 20.
Some women may experience nausea of varying degree and severity along with back ache, sore stomach during periods. Usually, periods last between 4-7 days. It is not common to have very severe nausea and bleeding up to 14 days. But, some women may have very short or long cycles of menstruation with variable duration of bleeding. It is definitely advisable to have a complete gynecological examination to exclude any pathology as you seem to be having a very prolonged period with very severe nausea.
Hormonal assays are also advised. Please speak to your doctor and gynecologist for the opinion and examination. Thank you.
