You should see your gynaecologist. This could be due to endometriosis.

I totaly agree with Dee. Apply heat to your tummy. I use an empty 2l coldrink bottel filled with hot water and covered with a small towel. I even bring it to work and put it at the back of my chair if it is realy bad. Also take some pain killers. My theory on this is, cramps are caused by clotting. Heat thins blood out and make it flow more easily. Some people say that exercise is the best for the cramps, but when in that state, no one is able to exercise.

I must say that while I was on the pill, it was not that bad. For some, relief from this only comes once you have had a baby.

Good luck

Blackouts and nauseaNow thats worrying.It must be the unbearable pain that causes themave ppains is to go on the Pill.Or else you need to take painkillers with ibuprofen like Nurofens.Take them every 3 to 4 hours when you are in pain.Applying heat to your tummy will help
