2 Helpful Ways to Treat Nausea During Your Period

I think we can all agree that when Mother Nature decides to come and visit, it's uncomfortable and inconvenient. Yes, it's a totally natural thing that happens to every woman, but the few days where we experience cramping and blood flowing out of our bodies always have us always readjusting everything in our lives to make us feel more comfortable. 

And then there are some of us who get really bad side effects from our periods. I used to get cramps so bad that I had to be picked up from school and lie in bed all day. Luckily for me, the pain that comes with the cramps never led to nausea, but according to Guvnor Ekman-Orderber, MD, PhD, a DeoDoc Intimate Skincare expert and OBGYN, pain from cramps can lead to that sick feeling. "There are several reasons to explain why a woman may experience nausea during menstruation. One of most common reasons is pain caused by menstrual cramps," says Eckman-Orderber. "Nausea can also occur from the hormonal changes in the body during the menstrual cycle."
