Not reallly sure whats going on - August 16th 2012, 01:08 AM

Well, I've been takin birthcontorl for about 3 years now. The reason that i'm taking it is to help my periods. I've been doing fine till the last few months. I've been havin cramps like crazy again. I was like this befor i was put on the birth contol. I just don't know what to do to help control them since i'm already on the birth control pills. Anyone have any advice on what i can do.

I would recommend talking to your gynecologist. I'm not a doctor so I can't give a proper diagnosis, but maybe your body has become immune to the birth control? I don't know. Explain what's happening to your doctor, and he/she can maybe prescribe you a different birth control pill that will help.

Otherwise, ibuprofen works wonders for me when I have cramps. That, and chocolate.

I sent the bf to the store and he picked up some midol to see if it will help take some of the pain away.

Midol should work to help with the cramps. That's what it's made for.

However, it's possible the birth control you're currently taking might not be working for you anymore. I would speak with your doctor and maybe they could recommend a new kind of birth control that will help you.

If ibuprofin, naproxen, and midol/pamprin all have no effect on your cramps, I would definitely speak to your doctor. It could potentially be endometriosis, or you could just be unlucky and have horrible cramps. But it's not something you can self-diagnose at all, you should speak to your doctor.

Then you need to go to your doctor if it's not getting better.

So, when you first start birth control, you have to try all kinds of birth control to find the right one for you. It is possible that your hormones have changed since you've been on this birth control you have now. I recommend seeing your doctor or whoever prescribed your birth control because you might need to swap for a different brand/dose. Best of luck, feel better. Also, cold water slows down cramps.
