It may be hormones: There is an abrupt change in your level of hormones around your cycles. This withdrawal of hormones can cause such symptoms as headaches, cramps, and nausea. Birth control can help alleviate these symptoms as well as make your cycles predictable, lighter, and less painful.

Period: A heavy period may cause all of these symptoms. If you are wondering whether you are pregnant, only a urine or blood test can answer that.
