Nausea: Is a symptom of PMS. It is caused by the hormone progesterone which peaks after ovulation. Its this same hormone that causes morning sickness during pregnancy when the levels are much higher. Occasionally you may not ovulate or you may not produce as much hormone so you might not have nausea every cycle.
