I may be getting on the pill soon, both as birth control and to see if it helps my terrible cramps (bad enough that I can't leave the house on the first day)
I've read somewhere that you should try it for 3 months before deciding it doesn't work for you (unless you get awful side effects), so I assume I may not be seeing results asap, but I'm curious if you felt a difference in your cramps right away or it took some months.
I will ask my doctor and I know this will vary from person to person, but I wanted to hear some personal experiences about it first.
I'm excited about it but at the same time a bit scared about side effects (the Internet, as always, is chockfull of horror stories. I know the bias of people posting more to complain about something than to say it's working great, and all that, but it's still a bit scary!)
