Our expert says:
There may be a relationship between heavy, painful periods and high stress levels. If you did OK on the Triodene for the last year, don't change your pill now. It may be due to a temporary hormonal imbalance. You can try taking Biral, a homeopathic medication for stress, and an anti-inflammatory like Neurofen for the cramping. If the heavy bleeding persist, you could discuss alternative contraceptives with your gyne, like the Mirena IUD or the progesterone injection.
