How often has this occurred? Consistently every month? That is a bit weird, I have experienced nausea once or twice, but I've never actually thrown up.

There is a rare condition called dysmenorhea that some women experience. It is when a day or two before their period starts they experience reeeaaallly bad cramping that radiates to their back. Sometimes it's so bad that it is linked to diarhea, vomiting, or nausea, and cramping that is bad enough for it to prohibit normal day-to-day activities. Also with dysmenorhea, the symptoms start one to two days before menstruation begins and becomes the worst the first day of the flow, usually. I think it is linked to abnormal contractions of the uterus. You can get tested for it at a doctor if symptoms persist, but it's not very common... although I'm sure half the women on here, myself included, feel their selves sharing symptoms!

Dysmenorrhea is very common
It's actually quite common. All the word means is that one's menses (period) is painful. It's almost always bad cramping. That's all it is. 'Dys' means painful or bad.

Nausea
I have also experienced this. For me the symptoms got gradually worse over time. After the nausea was so severe it actually woke me up. I thought back to some obscure study i had heard about several years ago that indicated that women that have severe morning sickness have children that have huge cravings for salt.

So I decided to add more Iodine to my diet. (I was having processed sea salt with no iodine added, I didn't know that the processed salt has all the natural iodine removed)

Since then i have had no problems with nausea

Here is an article on iodine that links iodine to hormones.

I am not a doctor, so there probably other things it can be. You should probably look up recomended intake for iodine to be on the safe side.

Especially eHealthy
I had something very similar when I am not on any form of hormonal birth control. My cramps come before my menses. In highschool, I did miss several days because of the cramps. The cramps were so incredibly painful that I have indeed become nauseous and vomited due to them. However, it didn't happen every month. Pamprin could control the cramps if taken in time and then I would not get sick.

Pain can cause nausea and diarrhea, and I had odd bowel movements due to the pain as well. As I said, pamprin was the cure for me until I got onto hormonal birth control. That eased my symptoms greatly, so much that I didn't even need pamprin! Just medium/light cramping.

This nausea and diarrhea is definitely not normal every month. I would take her in.

Nausea, Vomiting With Periods
I have had that as a teenager. This is how endometriosis manifests itself in the beginning. Don't ignore the symptoms, they won't go away, they will only get worse and will lead to infertility. It took 23 years of suffering and 9 OB/GYNs to diagnose and threat my condition. Read as much as you can, find a doctor that is knowledgeable about the disease. The best site I was able to find on the subject:

Premenstrual nausea, fatigue
I also have this quite bad before a period, and must often spend a day or two in bed. I have PCOS and hypothyroidism, so my hormones are all crazy imbalanced.

It sounds like only a doctor and maybe ultrasound can explain what is going on so that you know how to treat her. I DO know that birth control really helps most people!

period pains, vomitting, fainting
yeah, that's true, i myself have severe period symptoms, pain with nausea, with vomitting, diarehea, lying in bed, unable to stand or sit straight, it's terrible.... i used to take injections for the pain, and medicine.. but it didn't do much.. so i got myself to take the medicine and injection exactly before my period comes...I always felt like fainting.. and i couldn't say a word... i lied in bed for a couple of days.. and kept drinking warm cinnamon, which is so good to let the blood flow smoothly..

but now i have decided to stop all medicine.. and play regular sports every month to ease my period. it worked well, but i still get the pain but not vomitting , i feel like vomitting but i don't. i feel like fainting.. and i hate to communicate with people when i have it, or then i will be so rude.. because i get a problem in breathing while i have it, and talking to someone makes me feel like fainiting..

My daughter has been hospitalized for four months in a row for chronic vomiting. She gets dehydrated and anti-nausea meds don't work (phenegran, zofram). Eventually, after IV fluids and more meds, she recovers. This seems to happen just prior to her menstrual cycle. She has numerous tests and even had her gall bladder removed and still has the same symptoms. Suggestions?

severe vomiting!
I have been experiencing severe vomiting every two months just before my period. I don't have a problem with cramps although last time I did have very severe pains the day after. We thought it was gall bladder related so we did a cleanse but two months later it came back. It seems to happen 2 days before my period every other month. I vomit from 10-25 times each time i'm sick so my stomach gets very sore! I have tried taking gravol and it never works! Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Severe vomiting
I have had the same symptoms for the last two months and it's all unexplained. Severe vomiting and this last time added diarrhea the day before I started my period. No other signs of menstruating except tender breasts. My cramps start after I begin bleeding. I'm so puzzled and starting to get a little worried. Someone mentioned someting about my gallbladder?

Re: Nausea, Vomiting Before Period
I also had this problem but unlike many others, I never had cramps. Three months after I stopped my birth control, NuvaRing - which I had been using for about 4 years, I developed the same symptoms as others here. About 3-5 days before my period, I would get nauseated and retch for about three hours. I was sensitive to smells and it would hit me any time of the day. All my friends said it sounded like morning sickness. It happened every month for almost a year. My doctor ran all sorts of tests for thyroid problems and hormone issues, hypoglycemia, everything always came back normal. I was put on combination birth control (this time I tried Ortho TriCyclen) but that didn't help. Finally, I got some relief using MicroNor (NorQD) the progestin only birth control. I don't wish to be on any kind of contraceptive right now but it beats feeling sick every month. My doctor still doesn't know what happened or why this birth control worked. He suggested I maybe stop the birth control and try a natural progesterone cream. I haven't done that yet but maybe it will work for anyone else suffering.

horrendous periods every month
I have been suffering with this since i was 9 years old. It did tail off when i was on the contraceptive pill, but this then started giving me horrendous migraines, and also was diagnosed with ibs when on these. So had to stop taking. had various referrals, but never found anything wrong gynae-wise, so doctors never really tell me what is going on. i miss 2 days work every 4 weeks. sometimes my period isn't even heavy, but i still get the horrendous pain and vomiting almost every month, the fatigue is also horrendous. i am now 31 and completely fed up that no-one has helped me, so now i am trying to get endometrial ablation, a procedure that gets rid of the lining of the womb. but of course this has implications to those who have not yet had children. my doctors, also told me that it would get better following children, i misscarried and things got worse. take your daughter to the doctor, and deman a referral, keep bugging them until the do something, as this could effct her whole life, as it has mine.

nausea, vomiting,diarrhea during period
I always suffered from horrible menstrul cramps. I would miss school the first day or 2 of my period almost every month and would throw up from the intolerable pain and curl up in fetal position and waste 1-2 days in bed every month. Not long after I turned 30 I started vomiting ( and I mean power puking!) and diarrhea on the first day of every period for 6 months. The one doctor said oh its migraines, which made no sense to me so I seen a specialist. When I then had a laperoscopy and sure enough found endometriosis behind my uterus. I had it lasered off and haven't had a problem since:) I still get minor cramping but I can now take a couple advil to control the pain where as before the surgery nothing except for prescrioption drugs could ease the pain I experienced.
You don't realize how debilitating it is and how much work and or school you can miss from this horrible problem.
Another important tip is Omega 3's!!! so so so important for us women. They are a natural anti-inflamitory. anyone with period problems should be taking these, even if you don't they are still good for you:)

nausea and vomiting with periods
kaylaadair8

I have much the same issue as you and have been since new years eve 2009. I was in the hospital 15 times in 2010 all for severe chronic nausea and my stays were all one to two weeks long each time. Because I am a diabetic doctors have diagnosed me with gastroparesis, but there are too many other factors that are not gastroparesis related but can not be explained such as back pain right before one of my spells, and also, all of these vomiting spells occurred either just before, or during my period.
I am at a complete loss at this point as to what it can be as well as my doctors. They have all resorted to just treating the vomiting because there is "nothing else they can do." I am only 27 years old, and this is honestly ruining my life at this point.

I wish you all the very best, and like you I am praying for some kind of answer in the near future.

Regards,

Tammi

period nausea
I am experiencing severe, debilitating nausea as I write and I'm due for my a.f. any day. I've also noticed that my cycle has gone from 32 days to 45 days.. I recently had an ultrasound, thought it might be a cyst, but my test came back normal. Has anyone else considered endometriosis? I noticed someone said that that was their diagnosis. We are also ttc, so I don't want to take any birth control. Glad I found this posting..

Nausea before periods
I have found reading these posts very interesting, since my miscarriage in Feb 2011 before every period I to experience severe nausea, high sensitivity to smells and a horrid taste in my mouth I automatically think pregnant as we are desperate to conceive but then the cramps start and I know it's my period. I have been suffering with endometriosis since about the age of 18 and had three operations now to remove areas of it. My consultant sees the only way forward it to either have a baby or a full pelvic clearance. I am so confused I know what I want but nature really doesn't want to give it to me. I urge any women not to ignore any symptoms that seem out of character and see your GP. Anj

hormonal headaches
I've had horrendous headaches accompanied by continuous vomiting shortly before my period starts, for about 10 years. Fortunately, a wonderful doctor tested me for MTHFR and I was positive(it's a genetic mutation.) I was put on a prescription grade b complex and if I take it regularly, I have absolutely no problems with the migraines and nausea. The B vitamins (esp b6) play a large role in maintaining your hormones! Take your vitamins!
