Customer Question

I had my period September 29th-october 2nd. I track my cervix position to keep up with my cycle. my last three cycles were 33 days 38 days and this one was 27 days, I had a lot of back pain and cramping with this cycle, im wondering if it is normal for my cervix to be high medium firm and opened on days 4 and 5 since my last period day. I am also having indigestion, headaches, gas and gas pain with some nausea as well.

Hi there.

Indigestion, gas pain and nausea is something that could be related to hormonal changes in the body or could be related to inflammation in the stomach or gastritis.

The cervical changes that you mentioned are pretty normal and I would not worry about those.

For the indigestion I would recommend that you should try taking prilosec 20 mg twice daily and also take dramamine for the nausea to see if that helps.
