Our expert says:
Before starting on a pill a young woman should preferably see a doctor or trained sister, who should ask about family history of breast cancer, deep vein thrombosis, find out whether the patient smokes or not, test urine, do blood pressure reading and weight, check for hormone imbalances and then determine the best lowest dose contraceptive that would be suitable for her to use. A combination of pain and anti-inflammatory medication usually work well for severe period pain (e.g. Myprodol, Grandpa, Mypaid etc)
