Pain in lower abdomen
Hello. I stopped taking the Yasmin Contraceptive Pill on 1 September 2007 as my Husband & I are trying to start a family. I expected my period to be irregular & it was for the first two months. However, on or about 8 December 2007 I started my period and it carried on for approx. 25 days. This was worrying enough but In the last two weeks of it I experienced incredible and uncomfortable pain in my lower abdomen in the vicinity of my uterus/ovaries. It became painful to walk and the doctor prescribed Synflex. It is still uncomfortable, especially during intercourse, and it feels as if something is swollen inside and I feel very bloated. The pain is not sharp anymore, but still present. Would appreciate your very kind assistance and advice.

This would not be due to stopping the Pill. You would need to see a gynaecologist for a full assessment to find out what the problem is.
