Hi there, I have been on oral contraceptives for about 5 years. I have had almost no menstrual pain since using them. With my latest period, I have had such pain that it was almost unbearable. Is it possible that I could have fallen pregnant throughout the pill and that the pill brought forth a miscarriage, with my period?

That is unlikely. It may be that you have an ovarian cyst causing the pain.

Best wishes

I have had the same problem, chances are your hormones are inbalanced, if you didn't skip any of the pills. it's not a major thing. your natural and pill cycle are in contrast and that's why you have the pain. have it checked though

It may be taht you have an imbalance in hormones. I have found that that causes me great distress during my periods. Have it checked by a doctor.
