Poor DD(13) has suffered with this each month for the past 4-5 months and consequently is needing this time off school. We are going to see our GP next week as she doesn't need or want to miss anymore school (she's in yr9, so it is a very important yr for her). what are our options for her?
I suffered from this as a teenager - horrendous cramps, sickness, cold sweats and I passed out once - it was hideous.
I went on the pill at about 15 I think, and it's fair to say it transformed my life - mild cramping was the worst of my symptoms after that, and periods were lighter too.
I was on it constantly until we ttc#1. i was dreading having to come off it, but luckily for me i got pregnant the first momnth of trying, so I never had a 'real' period. Then after DS was born I went on the mini pill at 6 wks after his birth, then back onto my normal pill when I stopped bfing. Am now pg with no 2, which again was conceived the first month of trying, so I still don't really know what a proper period is like for me now!!
Hope you can sort something out for your DD - she has my sympathies.
