Ovulation during mid-cycle may produce some symptoms, while some women never have any.  Nausea is not among the most common symptom that you’re ovulating, but it can be a secondary one.

Sometimes ovulating women may experience heightened senses, as our bodies become more attracted to the male pheromone androstenone, so our nose is on the lookout. Some women may also have an increased sense of taste and vision.

While not every woman has these symptoms, occasional headaches or nausea during ovulation are possible. They may occur due to sharp and rapid changes in your female hormones.  

Did you know that nausea during mid-cycle may also signal a possible pregnancy?

Yes, if you’re not sure if you are pregnant or not, it’s best to get a test done.

However, most often women get nauseous because of food issues that are often misinterpreted as those related to female health issues.

Here’s what you can do about your nausea in mid-cycle:

If you suspect this might be the case, get a pregnancy test. If your nausea is persistent and doesn’t go away within 24 hours, it’s best to call your doctor.
