The female organism is individual, therefore the premenstrual syndromes can differ significantly. For someone, this period is marked by infernal pains, vomiting and nausea, and someone does not notice any symptoms and easily tolerates menstruation. Symptomatology can differ from one woman, depending on the ovary in which the ovum ripens. With monthly nausea, it can be the most unpleasant symptom that causes severe discomfort.
The causes of premenstrual syndrome
The period of menstruation is a stress for the female body, as there is a sharp jump in hormones, breaking the balance between female and male sex hormones. With monthly nausea can be caused by just such an imbalance. In addition to nausea, PMS is often accompanied by an increase in the sensitivity of the mammary glands, pain and bloating, pain in the lumbar region, irritability and headache.
Almost every woman has monthly problems with premenstrual syndrome. To adequately respond to all of its manifestations, you need to know the causes of these or other symptoms.
Why bothered by nausea before menstruation? The causes of its appearance are associated with an increase in the serotonin concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid. Another cause of nausea and vomiting can be an excessive amount of fluid in the body, as this affects intracranial pressure, increasing it, causing bouts of nausea.
These symptoms may be accompanied by dizziness, paleness and increased anxiety. This condition of a woman can result in loss of consciousness. If this happens, it is necessary to consult a doctor.
Nausea before menstruation: causes of anatomical nature
In addition to hormonal imbalance and the symptoms that follow from it, nausea can be caused by anatomical features of the uterus's location in the body. So, in some women, the uterus is turned back, which is a difference from the norm. That is why before and during the course of their course, the enlarged organ presses on the nerve spinal roots, causing nausea.
With monthly nausea may be accompanied by swelling, discomfort and pain in the lower abdomen and in the lumbar region. All this together with a violation of the balance of progesterone and prostaglandins causes severe discomfort.
Other causes of nausea
Another option is strong physical activity. The increased size of the uterus during activity exerts a strong pressure on the spine, pushing the nerve centers.
To avoid the occurrence of nausea, you need to reduce physical activity before menstruation and stop it in the first days of those. If there was pain and nausea with menstruation, it is necessary to stop any stress and rest more.
Taking oral contraceptives also causes vomiting and nausea with menstruation. To determine what the problem is in tablets, you need to pay attention to the attendant symptoms, such as severe headaches, excessive sweating and irritability.
With inflammation of the ovaries, vomiting can occur abruptly, which will be accompanied by a headache, sensitivity to odors and bloating. Also, there may be sharp changes in blood pressure, accompanied by monthly, fever and temperature.
Why does pain come?
Normally, the period of menstruation should not bring a woman uncomfortable sensations. If there is severe pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, dizziness before or during menstruation, three options are possible:
- The presence of inflammatory processes in the reproductive system of women.
- Incorrect location of the uterus.
- Underdevelopment of the uterus.
Also, pain can occur after severe stress or in CNS disorders. Normal menstruation, not bringing any sensations, only occur in a small number of women. The rest suffer from premenstrual syndrome and painful menstruation most often because of the large number of stressful situations in everyday life.
When should I see a doctor?
There are symptoms that require immediate attention to a specialist:
- Prolonged and intensifying pain in the lower abdomen, accompanied by nausea and vomiting;
- When menstrual flow increases, when they significantly increase the habitual norm;
- Black menstruation is also a reason for going to the hospital, since in this case the doctor can diagnose the development of infection or inflammation of the genitals;
- The appearance of an inflammatory process, accompanied by a persistent increase in body temperature, chills, fever, increased sweating;
- The presence of an infection characterized by an unpleasant odor, color of discharge, and also causing severe itching, pain and rezi when urinating.
In order to have time to eliminate the cause that can cause dangerous pathologies of the sexual system of a woman, you need to closely monitor your health and current status. The last day of menstruation should be accompanied by insignificant discharge, unpleasant symptoms are not characteristic for the indicated period, therefore, if they are available, you should consult a doctor.
How to cope with nausea
If a woman can not independently cope with nausea attacks through meditation or relaxation of the body, it is necessary to seek help from a gynecologist who can determine the root cause of this symptomatology of the premenstrual period and will suggest how to eliminate it. With monthly nausea can bring severe discomfort, disrupting the habitual rhythm and lifestyle of a woman, especially if she is active and energetic.
The simplest way to eliminate nausea is to take antispasmodics and drugs that have an anti-inflammatory effect. If there is a hormonal imbalance, the doctor can prescribe medication that eliminates this problem and, accordingly, neutralizes the painful symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menstruation.
Prevention of nausea with menstruation
The optimal option is to prevent the emergence of unpleasant and bring severe discomfort symptoms. First of all, before the beginning of the menstrual cycle, you need to normalize the diet, exclude overeating, eating fatty foods, eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible.
The regime of the day must also be reviewed. For easier flow of PMS you need to fully rest and sleep, avoid stressful situations and spend a lot of time in the fresh air.
