I used to get awful cramps before I went on birth control in college. I would get some sort of cramps every cycle but they were not always writhing on the floor ones. I went off birth control in February and this is only my second period since then. The first one wasn't to bad. This one actually made me think the following things:
- I am so going back on birth control, having a baby is not worth this!
- I could totally have a baby contractions and birth can't be any worse than this!
- If I just stabbed myself would it make the cramps go away?
- I wonder if my OB would prescribe me, oh say, some CODEINE to help with the pain of cramps until we at least start trying to have a baby next January?!
Anyway, I am better for now but will definitely exceed the daily recommended dose of IB Prophen to make sure I stay off the floor!
