I've been on a particular type of BC for a while and it works out great for me. This last month I decided to just start the next pack immediately because I didn't want to have to deal with a period for various reasons.

Guess who just had a month-long period?

Before I got on BC my cramps were really bad I would take 3 alieve every 4 hours the first 2-3 days of my period for YEARS. Now I have stomach ulcers, and I think it also got to the point I had taken it so much it didn't help as much. The best was when I had pain killers left over from having my teeth pulled, I would save them and use them for cramps and that helped so much more.

Aleve (naproxen) IMO is one of the best things to take for pain/muscle aches. I got a Diva Cup for this go around and I'm on day 2 of my cycle and it's SO AWESOME.

I need to get better about taking red raspberry.

I have similar symptoms, super heavy (way TMI but its heavy enough that at times I can stand in the shower and clots just fall out continuously), very painful cramps, exhaustion, and headaches. I take 4 ibuprofen about every 4 hours which is NOT good and have been doing that since I was a young teen.

I went on BC for them but they always came back after several months or so, like my body acclimated to the hormones and reverted to normal. Honestly, especially as I am older (32) I dont feel comfortable taking BC.....but I need to do something.
