Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

When I have my period, my stomach stop functioning. Even my medication is not digested by stomach. Is it normal? Please help.

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Garima Sawhney


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read the query, and I can understand your concern.

The stomach does not stop functioning during periods. Your condition is a normal body mechanism due to hormonal changes during periods. Therefore, this results in undigested feelings, causing pain and vomiting sensations. You can take some antacids to feel better.

I hope this will help you.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
