Aw, I feel your pain! I too am currently sat cuddled up in bed, with a hot bottle on my stomach, dosed up on feminax. Was s'posed to be going out tonight as well
I get nausea often on the first couple of days of my period, especially if it's a bad one, so I think it's pretty normal. I also tend to get headaches, and my back and legs ache, so if you feel like that it's probably period related too. Have you had some painkillers? They may help the nausea too.
I had pretty bad period pains too but I've found taking the pill has lessened it. It's also made the time I'm 'on' shorter. If you go to your doctor maybe you could ask about trying it out. But I know a lot of people have problems on the pill- especially finding the right one. But it's worked okay for me.
You can either believe your society should strive to be better than it's problems or as bad as them. - JimV
