I've been on the pill for about 2 years. I usually get my period for 4-5 days. I have a history of PCOS (already had to have my right ovary removed due to a cyst).
This month, I got my period for about 6 hours on Saturday with terrible cramps. My period stopped Saturday night, and as of today (Tuesday) it has not resumed. I have moderate pain in the area of my left ovary. I am also mildly sick to my stomach. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and both were negative. I called to make an appointment with my gynecologist, and before they would let me schedule, they made me talk to the doctor's nurse. She told me the short period was due to the birth control pill, I'm fine, and I have no need to see the doctor. I just don't feel right about this...wondering if someone could give me their input.

  • I think that you need to see a Dr considering you are in pain and you have already had an ovary removed due to a cyst.The birth control pill is actually supposed to regulate your period and minimize cramping and since you have been on the pill for two years then it should not be causing your period to be irregular. I think that you need to call your Dr back and tell them that you want an appt and that it is necessary cause it is your health not theirs and if you are concerned then you need to get checked out cause instincts are usually pretty accurate.
