I am 16 and started getting periods at 10; and since then they have gotten worse as I have gotten older. Right now I can tell you with out any doubt what so ever that I get every side effect that you can think of. To name a few, cramps, mood swings, bloating, nausea, fainting (i had to stay home from school before I was pulled out). The only pain killer that I can use is advil and it only works if I can keep it down. Do you have any suggestions? I don't need it for the actual b.C. Because I don't have a b/f. Please I need some help from someone that is wiser than me.

Birth control pills helped my cramps so much! I used to have really heavy periods and awful cramps, so my mom took me to the gyno a couple years ago and she put me on the pills. Worked wonders!

Birth control helps a lot of girls who get bad cramps. Some girls don't even get cramps anymore once on the pill. You should consider it!

Thanks Gals!
Hey that's really helpful. Thanks! But my mom still says "no way. My daughter isn't taking drugs she could live without." sucks to be me right now.

I'm sorry your mom is so against you being on the pill.It really helped with my gut-wrenching cramps and made my periods almost non-exsistant.Maybe if she talked with your doctor,that would help her see that the pill could greatly improve the quality of your life(and give her piece of mind,when you do get a boyfriend!!)good luck!!
