Post Cramps

I have been on the pill for 6 years now and up intill a few months ago it has made my cramps go away. Now for the past few months i have been getting death pain cramps. I have never had them this bad before. Ive been to my gyno and he doesnt see anything irregular with me. I dont know if i should have him switch my pills or what. Any suggestions?

Go back to the doc and have him check for problems like endometriosis or PCOS. A sudden change like that indicates something is going on and your doc should not ignore a sudden change.

my problem sounds similar to yours. im 22, never really suffered from cramps. been on the pill about 4 years. then 2 months ago i got severe cramps in my lower right side. the gyno said it was a cyst, had an utrasound which showed nothing, then had a colonostomy, which showed nothing, but dr said i had irritable bowel syndrome, which i dont believe cause i dont have any of the related symptoms to have ibs. ive been reading up a lot on endometriosis, and im scared that might be what i suffer from. have you had any testing yet?
