It is supposed to help with painful menstral cramps but I am in A LOT of pain right now.

Does anyone know how many periods it takes to start lessening the cramps? Soon I hope!

I think it must depend on the person and the pill new

When I was on the patch (ortho evra), it didn't do a darn thing for my cramps... in fact, I think it made them worse. I switched to the pill (ortho cyclen) and my cramps are almost nonexistent (and were from the 1st cycle), but my PMS is absolutely HORRIBLE, with bloating and nausea like crazy. I think I'd rather have the cramps! Can't win! LOL

Sorry, I know that wasn't at all helpful!

Hi Tina,

I found that it actually helped more when I first went onto the pill, and then wore off over time.
Also, I found that Alesse wasn't as good as the other bcp I was on for helping with cramps.

Try taking some tylenol AS SOON as you feel that some cramps might be coming on, I found this really helps keeps the cramps away.
Orgasms help too, hee hee.

Sorry I couldn't be more help!!
**hugs**

I think for me it took about 3 months for it to get into my system and then I started noticing a difference.

Eeek....hope you feel better soon!! Use a heating pad, drink some tea and watch reruns of Sex and the City or Buffy the Vampire Slayer!! Hee hee....that's what I do!!

Ok, I hope it happens next cycle or the one after that. I have loaded up on Advil so I'm ok now. I wish I could be curled up in bed though.

Steph, that's true. Since it's low-dose maybe it's just not as strong as some of the other types. Hmmm...
