I am 25 years old, and every month the first day of my period is horrible for me. I was taking birth control pills but my husband and I decided we want to have a baby. While on the BCP I experienced no pain with my periods at all, but now that I'm not taking them anymore. Only on the very first day of my period I will wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning in horrible pain. I break into a cold sweat, it causes me to have diareah, I feel like I could throw up, and I am cramping so bad that I take about 4 advil and lay in a hot bath until the advil kicks in and knocks me out. After I wake back up, I feel weak but after that I don't have hardly any pain for the remainder of my period. I also pass clumps of blood, some small and some larger throughout my period. I have often wondered if this has something to do with the horrible pain I experience. Why does my body do this? It is so painful.....I dred the first day of my period every month knowing that I have to go through it. I have been to the doctor and she told me that I needed to eat peanut butter for breakfast.....that wasn't much help...it didn't work. She also gave me naproxen (sp??) for the pain, but for some reason, that doesn't work for me. Can anyone tell my why this happens?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
