I don’t recommend using essential oils as they are too concentrated feeling nausea in the morning for this purpose.

I have a question about yoni steaming, because I would like to get into it. I have a long standing history of menstrual irregularities. I have been called an anomaly by my specialists. I have no “identifiable pathology” causing my imbalances, and quite frankly I’m sick of being referred to as a lab specimen feeling nausea in the morning rather than an all powerful spiritual being gifted this body feeling nausea in the morning from mother earth. It says on this page that it is contraindicated to feeling nausea in the morning do steaming while bleeding, and to do in leading up to your cycle. I do not have a regular cycle, nor do I have a real period. I have a consistent flow of brown sometimes chunky discharge feeling nausea in the morning (sorry for the visual) that is quite scant. Is it okay to do yoni steaming with that type feeling nausea in the morning of “bleeding”? I have suffered from a multitude of things I have feeling nausea in the morning read steaming can help, i.E recurring bacterial and yeast infections, irregular bleeding, clots, pms, pelvic floor tightness and pain with intercourse. I am young and NEED to find relief, and if I am given one more tube of steroids feeling nausea in the morning to rub on my vagina I might lose it! Am I a good candidate to try yoni steaming?

I’m sorry you have to deal with all of this. You are absolutely a good candidate for yoni steaming, but as effective and soothing at it is – and it truly is an effective and nourishing practice – I do recommend you think of it as a complimentary feeling nausea in the morning practice along with other things to support the variety of feeling nausea in the morning things you experience. You will likely need support from multiple angles, which you are probably already doing. It is fine for you to yoni steam throughout the feeling nausea in the morning type of irregular cycle you describe, including during times of brown/chunky discarge. When you say you have no ‘identifiable pathology’ – I’m assuming you aren’t ovulating given what you describe, so is it because your specialist don’t see a reason why your hormones aren’t releasing in certain patterns? Please feel free to email me again if any questions feeling nausea in the morning or concerns come up as you try out yoni steaming, I hope it will be a soothing practice for you feeling nausea in the morning to implement amidst the frustration.

Hi lisa – just some suggestions here, as we are each on our own UNIQUE path and feeling nausea in the morning you must figure out what is right for you. I am in my 40’s. My experience with my cycles is, I have a lot of cramping if I eat sugar, drink alcohol, and do not exercise during the 26 days prior to feeling nausea in the morning my flow … just an observation for me and for me, it is a HUGE key. I notice that cardio exercise is the best for me feeling nausea in the morning in increasing the blood flow to the uterus and eliminates feeling nausea in the morning PMS and cramping. Also, the steams will help you with a flow a little feeling nausea in the morning bit, I use basil and rosemary, but it’s not an exact science … you can search online for what herbs are supposed to feeling nausea in the morning accomplish which results. Also, to mention, perhaps look into taking an herbal remedy daily. I was seeing an acupuncturist who was giving blends of feeling nausea in the morning tinctures from the “conceivable” line (I do NOT recommend) and one of the blends helped my uterus shed the feeling nausea in the morning lining … I bled heavily for 3 days and then it was feeling nausea in the morning completely finished after day 4. After I stopped taking the blends, I had one cycle that was scant and black… gross. There are MANY places to buy herbal blends, so again, do your research. I started drinking red raspberry tea (almost daily) because it helps support a strong uterus. It is one good herbal remedy. I also found a man in tennessee that creates herbal feeling nausea in the morning blends from his own local herbs (learned from his father) and I am currently taking his “fertility” blend, but he also has another blend that is a female feeling nausea in the morning support tonic. I noticed a good flow, after I started taking his fertility remedy. All his blends are in an alcoholic base. His herbs are just “one” of many options and I recommend you do your research. His company is called “warner herbs” and they do not ship to california.
