I have been on the pill since jan of 2011 I have been on several types due to problems. Type one made me nausouse and vomit nearly everyday. Type two I had very light periods which were dark brown and only lasted one day I also had sever pain. Type three I was on for six months with no periods or spotting what so ever. Now I am on low- ogestrel on day 2 of starting this new type I started a full blow period that lasted a week and since then I have still spotted heavily I am on day 18 of the pack today I am in a lot of pain sharp cramps which hurt to bad to move around a lot has anyone experienced this? What should I do?

Yikes that sounds awful. While some spotting can be expected when starting a new pill I think heavy spotting combined with cramps requires a call to your doctor. Their expertise can determine the best course of action. It sounds like the third pill you were on was working fine so I'm surprised that they switched you. No periods and no spotting sounds like a recipe for no complaints if you ask me.

I agree that pain that has you bedridden is not something you wait out. Even if it turns out to be nothing you need to know what's going on, how long it will last, and how to make it stop.

Well the er would have more equipment available and could do an ultrasound if one was needed. They also have more experts that could examine you to help figure out what is going on. I'd say you should follow the advice the doctor gave you...if the pain gets worse go to the er.
