There may be different potential causes of nausea. That being said I would recommend that you start treating yourself along the lines of first assuming that it has to do with irritation of the stomach lining. This by far will be the most common reason for nausea. Diffuse irritation of the stomach lining is known as gastritis. A focal irritation may be an ulcer. Sometimes nausea is the only symptom from these conditions.
Along the lines of first assuming that it may be gastritis or an ulcer I would recommend that you take Prilosec 20 mg a day.Also avoid acidic or irritating substances>>> citrus fruits, tomatoes, foods with tomato sauce, onions, peppers, hot spicy foods, coffee, alcoholic drinks, anti-inflammatory meds(aspirin, Aleve, Advil) (Tylenol OK). If you take these steps for six weeks then this may clear up the problem. You can probably later be more liberal in your diet and stop the Prilosec once the stomach lining heals.
I still recommend that you see a doctor with regard to this nausea. If it is gastritis or an ulcer then it may be related to a stomach infection of H. Pylori. This can be detected with a blood test. It is also possible that something else is causing the nausea. It could be inflammation of the liver. It could be a kidney infection. Pregnancy can produce nausea. These are afew of the more common examples but the potential list is longer. So I recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor but start with the assumption that it relates to your stomach.

If you suspect pregnancy may be possible then test and check it out. If you had a normal period since the last time you had unprotected sex then it sounds unlikely. Sometimes women are fooled by the implantation bleeding which typically is lighter than a normal period. Also more recent intercourse with a condom if the condom ruptured might allow you to be pregnant. I would check a pregnancy test to be sure.Otherwise the above advice I would stand by.
I hope this helps. Further questions are welcome if you have any.
I recommend the one with the digital readout. I blank on the name of this one but it should be obvious by the picture on the box. This one is accurate as any and is less likely to be misread. It is best to use the first urine of the AM as this is the most concentrated. The most common error in reading these tests is failing to closely watch the time to read the test. Most of the tests are read at about 5 minutes but if left too long may look weakly positive even when they are not. So take care to follow the directions , especially WHEN to read the test.
I hope this helps.
You are welcome!
