I was having some bad mood swings and was recommended to me to take a low dose birth control pill (Loestrin). I have been taking it for about two weeks, the moods are great, I feel like my old self again. The only problem is the pelvic pain I am having, it is very intense. It was hurting so bad tonight that I thought maybe my ovary burst or something! So I came to get on my computer and found this website. I am a 50 year old. If anyone knows what this pain could be I would greatly appreciate any advise? thank you.View Thread
Thank you for your reply. It ended up being for just two nights, and it was always in the middle of the night but the pain was excruciating. Yes, this started after I started taking the pill. It is not as bad now but I still have a lot of pressure in my pelvic area. Also, I have never taken the pill before so I am not sure about how it all works, but is it normal to have started my period before I get to the sugar pills? The doctor thought I might not even have a period after starting these because I have had a uterine ablation and was having very light ones before, but I think this is one of the heaviest I have had since the ablation, is this normal sounding? Thank you for any information, KellyView Thread
