So I have really weird periods... like usually I am really early or just on time but one month it lasts a day and the next 9 days.
I always have horrible cramps... like the curl up and cry or die cramps.
I want to get put on birth control because I've heard it helps regulate and minimize cramps... First off... is this true?
Secondly I asked my mother if I could and she flipped out on me.
She said the only reason I want it is probably because I am having sex or whatever. But that's not the reason!
What should I do?
Well, first of all, yes, birth control will control your period and minimize your cramps. Definitely. Many women take it for that purpose.
I'd have a heart to heart with your mom- tell her how you feel, that you really do just want it for the cramps and you've heard it helps. Because it does!!! She's just worried because she wants to protect you. But if you really sit down and talk with her about the real reason you want it, she'll come around. Just focus on the stuff you just said, that you get really weird periods and horrible cramps. It might take you a while but she'll get it.
my first form of bc was depo..loved the fact of never getting periods...after i was on the for 3 yrs i switched to the pill.....ever since i was on the pill my periods are heavier then before i was any bc....i hardly ever get cramps tho, and my period usually comes rite on time every month....about ur mom, she should want to protect u not make u scared to talk to her....on bc or not ur going to be having sex, she should want to protect u from having kids a young age....the only thing that ur mom is doing is making it harder to talk to her when u are having sex....good luck....there is also PPH tho
