My body sure isn't liking the fact that I'm off my BC pills.

So sorry to hear about your cramps. Have any OTC meds helped? Advil worked best for me.

Now that I'm off BC AF cramps are my big worry. From the time I was 11 my period cramps were so bad that I would throw up all day and would hardly be able to walk (so I would be bed-ridden). My mom didn't want to put me on BC even though she knew it would help. I'm still angry about that. Anyway, after I got married I started BC and all of a sudden I could be a functional human being again. When I was trying to conceive DS I went off BC and then it was about 50/50 with the horrible cramps. Hoping this time everything will be painless.

So sorry you have such bad cramps! I hope they go away soon.
Have you tried putting a heating pad over your stomach? (I'm sure you have, but just had to share one thing that helps me sometimes.)

According to my mom, her Dad (LOL) told her that AF was normal and if she just let it happen and didn't worry about it she wouldn't get cramps & she never did.
