intense cramping when bending over?

I just recently went off birth control a few months ago after being on it for 5 years...and my cramps are a lot worse than they were on the pill but I'm guessing that's normal...the thing that kinda concerns me is that when I bend over, I get this intense cramping in the right side of my belly and it actually kinda feels like there is a big ball in there or something. Is that normal? The pain is so intense that it actually makes me nauseous and dizzy.

Re: intense cramping when bending over?

pinkpixies: Have you been checked for endometriosis? Ovarian cysts? Who knows what the BCP did to you all the years you were on it. Did you go on it just for birth control or for other female reasons? It could just be your body trying to readjust. Have you talked to your doctor about it. Maybe you need to get an ultrasound or MRI to see what's going on.

Re: intense cramping when bending over?

I went on it for birth control and to help regulate my cycles b/c they were irregular due to my hypothyroidism. So far off the pill they've been regular...running about every 25 days and lasting 8 days or so. I haven't had an ultrasound in about two years but the last time I had one it was normal except very small fibroids.
