Ladies!! Do you have really awful symptoms the week before your period hits!? Happens every time for the past 2 years and I’m not sure if the pill helps or hurts - what works for you, does birth control help, have you gotten hormone tests, what aleviates your symtpoms and what are your symptoms?

I get really bloated to the point where it feels like my gut shuts down / seizes up because it’s too puffy / inflammed and so I get constipated and then am in pain in multiple ways. The gas is UNcontrollable too. Anyone relate?

Nausea and Vomiting

Disturbance of skin sensation

Generalized pain


Abdominal Distention

Chronic Abdominal Distention

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


Chronic Nausea and Vomiting

    i have really bad nausea/bloating/pain for the day or two before my period. i used to take the pill, and i stopped for unrelated reasons (it was giving me migraines) and switched to a hormonal IUD. for me it’s not too different from my usual symptoms so i usually just take my regular medications, and i also take certain meds as needed so i tend to take more of those as well. i also find that certain supplements help me as well if you are interested in those!

      thanks for the response! What supplements do you choose?

        I take Olly Beat the Bloat for bloating, IBGard for IBS symptoms, and FDGard for stomach pain/nausea/etc! i find them to be pretty helpful for me

    YES! I get all of that so bad it’s terrible! I get terribly constipated and so nauseous! Zofran is a huge help when I get terribly nauseous! I was on Birth Control but it made my nausea, pain, and IBS episodes 10x worse :( essential oils work wonders for me and warm baths with lavender and peppermint!

      yessss, essential oils, nausea medication (I do promethazine although I like Zofran a lot more) and ibuprofen which help my stomach cramps more than back pain
