if you are experiencing serious pain you should probably go to the doctors, they might be able to prescribe you better painkillers or suggest birth control (I used to have really long painful periods and since going on birth control it has been miles better)

Could it be endometriosis? Talk to your GP, and bring up that possibility.

are you underweight? Could it be your diet? Is your diet lacking nutrition?
Do you have any medical conditions?

it could be your hormones? I think nausea is pretty common during periods for this reason. I also find being in pain can sometimes make me nauseous, probably the stress of it all.

If you can't take painkillers because of nausea or because you keep bringing them up - try more 'natural' remedies like a hot bath, acupressure, sipping ginger tea, deep breathing, stretching etc.

You should definitely see the doctor anyway. They can probably prescribe anti-nausea medicine. Get well soon!

pcos? that's the most common infertility cause and most common hormone imbalance. 1 in 10 women have it so maybe speak to your GP and bring that up?

When I was a teenager I used to get the worst period pains ever. I couldn't even stand up, and I'd vomit from the pain.

I don't really have much advice, because the only thing that made mine better was having children. Feminax used to take the edge off a TINY bit. My mother used to give me Indian Brandee to try and help but I don't think you can buy that stuff any more.
