Period pain

Hello.
I am almost 19 years old, so have had my period for years now. Usually it has always been painless, until now.
Could this be caused by BC pills?
I know the pill can be used to help with pain... so could it also do the opposite?
I have been on the pill for three months now.
The first period was the same as always, but then the next two were quite painful with cramping.
Now I understand what people are complaining about!
I saw the doctor after the first period and she didn't seem to care.
I started to be able to feel my right ovary (no pain) 2 weeks before my period started. For example, if I was on my stomach watching TV and then streched the wrong way it would 'pull'. And then the day before, both ovaries had a sharp 'pulling' pain like they were being stretched out. It didn't feel normal.
I also had strong cramps in the same area and lower back pain. The back pain I often experience during a period... but not always as bad.

Why? Please help. I can always see another doctor, I guess.
If it isn't caused by the pill, is it normal to just all of a sudden start having pain?
I have had my period for about 6 years. It has been mostly regular for at least 3.

Thanks anyone.

Re: Period pain

if u feel the pain 2 weeks before your period, this might be due to the ovulation...

Re: Period pain

But should I ovulate when on the pill?

Re: Period pain

No you should not and that is the whole point of taking the pill, so that it provides contraception by stopping ovulation, so that you then do not have a true period.

It could be that the type of pill you are on does not suit you and you may be better on another one. You may also have something like polycystic ovaries that are causing you pain.

Go back and see your doc or GYN and see whether you can try a different pill to see if it suits you any better. You can always have an exam and ultrasound to check your ovaies too.
