bmcgovern - December 19

I am getting ready to start my period and i am so sick to my stomach. I think it has to do with a hormonal imbalance not sure though. I have been dealing with this problem for 10 years now. Every time i am getting ready to start my period i get nauseated, upset stomach just feel really gross. The day i do start my period my stomach pain relieves for a couple days and once it hits the third day i get pain again. Does anyone else have this problem? I feel like i am the only one that this happens to everyone else who gets there period is just fine. Most people just get emotional. I get cramps but there really not that bad i just get bad stomach pain and am not sure why.

For me everything flares up week before my period. Worse IBS, worse body pain, and depression and anxiety. Thinks its all connected somehow

Oh yes. I'm 46 years old so I had an endometrial ablasion. no more period. Yeah! no more pre-period flares.

Yes, but my ob/gyn thinks I have pmdd. She put me on birth control but my rheumy told me to stop taking them b/c I have mild lupus and that could make it worse. The pain is so debilitating during that time. My ob/gyn suggested taking tylenol, motrin or whatever you prefer beginning 2-3days before your cycle starts to get ahead of the pain. Is your cycle heavy? Do you vomit? each is also a symptom of pmdd. If they pains are bad enough they can trigger a fibro flare so you definitely want to get that checked out.

yeah, sounds like my life. IBS flares, headaches, extreme fatigue, naseau, the works. I see Sonja 44 had ablation. I was going to but everything always goes wrong so I was afraid to. I had an IUD instead and then had to go on Birth control still having a lot of pain and breakthru bleeding. PS don't need pregnancy prevention husband had surgery years ago. I was 42 this week. Also have cysts on both ovaries. Have had period issues since teens. Three kids three c sections.
