So two months ago I went to the health clinic to get birth control. I’m turning seventeen in a month and I’m not sexually active. The only reason I wanted these pills, is because I researched them and saw that they can lessen the intensity of your cramps during your period, and some can actually make your period stop. This is what I really wanted!
I have super bad cramps. They get to the point where I curl up in a ball, drugged up on Midol with a heating pad, and they’re still bad. So I decided birth control should help the problem.
So I’m on my second pack of “Alesse,” currently on the sugar pills at the end. And I’m on my period right now. I still have bad cramps, and my period is pretty heavy.
What I wanted to know was, will my period ever lessen and my cramps go away? That’s the main reason I’m on the pill, for these horrible cramps. The nurse gave me three packages of the pills to do a trial run… So far, I’m horrible moody (sometimes depressed) and still have bad cramps.
Any suggestions/comments as to when these will kick in, or if they ever will? Is “Alesse” even going to help? 🙁
