Nausea 10 days before period

I seem to get really bad nausea around 5-10 days before my period, which lasts a day sometimes 2 days.

I also have general anxiety which can coincide with the changes and make my anxiety worse which makes the nausea more prominent.

The level of nausea does differ, last month I barely noticed it.

I'm not on the pill (never have been).

Are there any good solutions out there ? Quick fixes, I heard ginger is good but doesn't always work.

I did wonder if acid could be a culprit and anti acid tablets solve it ? ... I don't eat fast food, usually pasta and veggies.

Any suggestions ?

Oh and I'm 31 Smile regular cycle of 25-26 days, I use an app to keep track of them and they're like clockwork.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the nausea that you describe without further evaluation. The cause could be hormonal surge that occurs around your ovulation time. If worried, or if the symptoms have been persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation clarification and assistance. Get started on treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
