I'm about a week into my second month of the pill and since going on it I've had really bad back and leg ache, sore boobs and like a shooting period time pain just above the pubic bone. I'm starting to feel a bit worried, are these side effects normal?
it doesn't sound like normal side-effects of the OC pill - but it might be that. I think you should go back to your GP and get your prescription changed. Tell him/her your symptoms as well - the reason I asked about your leg was just in case it was a blood clot, but it doesn't sound like it. However, it can be tested for and perhaps should be to be on the safe side.
OK, have seen my GP and she has referred my for an ultra sound scan to ''check my tubes''. Being a SEVERE hypocondriac I feel violently sick at the thought of going for this scan. Anyone know how long I'll have to wait for it on he NHS?
