Hi everyone! I created this account for myself because I wanted more opinions than just my mum's... I am 14 3/4, and am thinking of going on the Pill for my excruciating period pain...
Every time I get my period (every 2 - 3 weeks) I get excruciating pain for the first 3 days to the point where I almost faint, find it difficult to control my limbs, get cold sweats, vomiting and diarrhea.
I have heard that The Pill, along with preventing unwanted pregnancies, also helps to stop cramping pains, and can reduce them by 75 - 100%?
I have tried Nuerofin Period Pain, Ponstan and the Amcal Extra Strong Cramp Relief, and they worked the first few times I used them, but the Nuerofin now doesn't help at all, and the Ponstan and Amcal only work for 1 -2 hours, then I am in pain again.
I really want to try The Pill to see if it will help, but I am scared as well because I have a weak stomach, and if I don't eat enough before taking pain medication, I throw up every 15 - 20 minutes for 1 - 2 hours.
I also want to have kids when I am older, so am concerned that it might affect my ability to have kids?
Please post any info at all, I don;t care how long or short.
