Wait… This has been happening to me! I noticed about a year ago that I was gagging for no reason, almost dry heaving, especially when I’m riding my bike (which is inconvenient considering that biking is my primary mode of transportation). The deal for me is that it doesn’t happen when I’m grossed out, it just happens. My doctor had no answers, and I’ve been dealing with it ever since.
This could be because of my birth control pills? That had never occurred to me! But I’d been on the a year before it started happening! (I wonder if it has to do with my taking the pill continuously.)
Well, I’m glad to hear that I’m not a total weirdo, what with my gagging. Still, it better than having a period. Thanks for shedding some light on something that has been a rather baffling mystery for me, vanilla!
