    cramps while on the pill?

    Hello..I've been taking seasonale and i'm on my second month now.. The nausea has gone away but now i'm experiencing cramps. I thought bcps were supposed to supress cramps? These cramps arent as painful as the real period cramps, but they do feel like pms cramps. Nontheless, they are bothersome. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm still spotting everyday, but the cramps are a recent side effect which im concerned about. Thanx for any response.

    I've been on the pill for years and still get those uncomfortable cramps. I usually get them on the 2nd day which is my worst. I don't get them before my period starts and before getting on the pill I would.

    I've asked my ob/gyn and he said that everyone's bodies are different, but as long as I didn't have cramps the while entire month (even when off my period) then I'm fine. Sometimes the cramps are so bad that I take a pain pill (darvosette) not sure how to spell it. Advil just doens't cut it.

    "I thought bcps were supposed to supress cramps?"

    Me too! ha was I wrong! If I don't take a pain killer, I still hurt like a mother!!!! Soo bad. IF I take Ibprofen BEFORE the cramps start (for me it's always day two of my bleeding), then I will get them, if I keep taking Ib profen usually I wont' , however I still deal w/ digestive/bowel issues at that time of the month and it's dr told me that BCP would obliterate all those probs and here I am still 3 yrs later.
