I've always had horrible periods, I would get high fevers, vomiting, heavy bleeding and horrible cramps. When I was 14 they took me to the emergency room because it had gottan really bad, and the doctor recomended birth control pills. I mean, it was so bad they wanted to sedate me for the night. I've been on them for about 3 years now and it's amazing, when my period comes I can actually get out of bed. Instead of 7 days it lasts about 3, and I can use thin pads vs the huge ones...I guess in short ever since I've been on BC life's been so much better.
