I get heartburn a week before my period too, but not every month. I also get accompanying headaches. The joys of womanhood!

Hi venusblue,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Not everyone will experience the same symptoms before their period.  But the feeling of Nausea might be due to the hormonal changes in your body preparing for your cycle.  It might be good to let your doctor know of all your symptoms.
