  • When I was a teen I used to actually throw up before I started my period. You would have thought I had morning sickness. Once I started though I didn't get sick anymore. Now that I am in my 40's I have started getting an ill feeling again with headache the day before I start or on the first day of my period.

    That's pretty much what happens to me. It never happened before I had my son, though.

    The nice thing is, it's like an early warning system.

  • When I was younger I would always throw up on the 2nd day of my period. After that I was fine. I haven't gotten sick like that in a very long time.
