Patient :I'm currently in the Army. I am coming home in a little over a week and my girlfriend and I are scheduled to go on vacation from Aug 8-15, but her period is due on the 8th. She is on birth control, but last time she skipped, it seemed like her joints ached a little bit more and she has always had repeats (like throwing up in her mouth) but that has been from other stomach problems, just when she skipped last time it seemed like it happened a little more often. She doesn't know if these are linked at all to be honest, it just seemed so. What would you suggest? Thank you for your time.
