umm, a bit of background; when I first got my periods they were fine, but over the years they got heavier and heavier (passing clots of blood) and I had an aching pain on my right side for the week before and during my period, which turned to a stabbing pain when I went to the bathroom. The doc said it could be endometriosis (we didn't investigate this any further though) and I asked to be put on the Pill (Yasmin). He said it was fine for me to only have a period every 3 months while on the Yasmin. However, now I am taking the hormone section of a box of Yasmin, and for the last fortnight I have had light bleeding on and off, plus a similar sort of sharp, stabbing pain in my pelvis. (In a way it kind of feels like the inide of my bellybutton got caught on a fishing hook and someone is pulling on it!). I was just wondering if any other people have had a similar problem on the Pill?

Any answers much appreciated :)

  • It's a pretty poor doctor who doesn't do an ultrasound for a diagnosis. You should try acupuncture for the problem.

  • hiFirstly i would deffinatly push for further investigation! I have endo and i often get the sort of pain you're describing. I wouldn't worry about the bleeding...its probably just breakthrough bleeding or because you've been running it back to back so its fairly common. If you're still unsure though ask your GP if you can change pills as Yasmin can sometimes have some bad effects on people so if it gets any worse I'd go back and change pill and then get them to do some tests. goodluck and let us know how you get on

  • I agree :) ..an acupuncturist would be able to provide you with the attention you need to help regulate your cycles and reduce pain. Of course, any good acupuncturist would also reccommend you rule out more serious conditions with an ultrasound and further testing.
