Maybe go back and ask if he can prescribe anything else because it's not working for you. Tell him what's wrong and that you can't take it and see if he'll switch it with something else. Good luck op.

Me too. I had to go on the pill because of horribly painful & irregular periods. They told me a cyst on my ovary was probably bursting too. But every period was so excruciating I had to take Tylenol 3's. I know exactly what op means when she says she feels like she's being stabbed in the ovary with a rusty fork. Op: go to the doctor and ask for a new prescription, but in the meantime go to the pharmacy and you can buy Tylenol 1's with codeine (at least you used to be able to without a prescription) if not, than ask your doctor for a few Tylenol 3's in case the new prescription doesn't work, or causes the same side effects. Good luck op!

It's annoying, but pretty much all anti-depressants have that possible side effect. :/ Been there, done that. I've spent years just trying to get one that works. Finally found one at least!

My doctor gave me medication called ponstan which has a side effect of possible stomach olsers and causes extreme pain. Like wow dude, this is so much better then cramps.

Adults can have problems with suicidal thoughts because of anti-depressants. I know from experience - both me and my sister have marks on our arms thanks to anti-depressants.

#7, The one reason why my doctor told me that depressants could potentially cause suicidal thoughts is because they are supposed to give you more energy. With that you could have the idea to go through with suicide.

At the start anti depressants can cause a deepening of the depression before causing an improvement. It's a hard few weeks but it's much better if you can get through it. Just takes the brain time to adjust to the chemicals flowing differently

You might have PCOS. When I was younger I used to experience severe cramps to the point I found it hard to walk. Research the symptoms and if you can relate to a lot maybe I talk to your doc :)

Or endometriosis. I would look into both, OP. I have it, and it has caused some of the worst pain I've ever felt in my whole life. I hope you find a solution. Those kinds of things can be so frustrating.

don't forget water, ginger mint tea, chamomile tea, warm blankets, light stretching to loosen up the area and relax tense muscles, and eating foods without sodium.
