I’ve been on the pill for about 13 years. I went off the pill 3 months ago. Amazingly, my period came back with no problems and I am right on schedule every 28 days.
But I forgot about headaches and cramps. The first day is the worse. And today is that day for me. This month feels worse than the others, I feel awful. Nothing is helping.
And, next month, I will get my period 2 days after my wedding, thankfully not my wedding day. It is also the day we leave on our honeymoon. At least the worst day will be a travel day….

Ughh I know :/ I’m staying on BC until after the wedding, if I end up having my period during the wedding and honeymoon I’ll just take my pills back to back.
Load up on Pamprin girl!

Yes i am not looking forward to this. I went off the pill at the end of last month so i am patiently waiting for mine this week. I went off the pill for a month or 2 a year or so ago and was quickly reminded of what real cramps are. ugh.
Oh well. Its all natural.

@ajillity81: do you take calcium / magnesium supplements? it sounds weird, but my doctor recommended it for bad cramps and can help a great deal. it worked for me and many of my girlfriends.

I hate cramps! But I would kill to have my cycle be the same each month, mine have been anywhere from 28-38 days since coming off of BCP, and it’s been almost a year now that I’ve been off.

@nerdybird: i’m taking pre-natal viatamins which i am sure have calcium and magnesium in them.
the cramps only last a day. today, i have a terrible headache so i think that is making everything else feel worse.

@ajillity81: Those cramps really do suck. The other week I was on my period and supposed to meet H for dinner and was a typical 5 minute walk from the restaurant. He called me ten minutes later asking where I was and didn’t believe that I didn’t stop at a store on the way to meet him. Later when we were walking home I kept having to ask him to slow down for me and we realized that I’d been kind of waddling all day due to cramps and my tummy feeilng really weird.

I love my heat packs. and I swear using a diva cup makes my cramps so much less than when i used tampons. not sure why, but it’s a noticable difference. Feel better!
