Birth control pill causes cramps?

I just started back on the pill (the generic Ortho Tri-Lo) on Sunday after having my DD 8 mos. ago. I have started having some cramps lately, almost like period cramps. What's that about?

  • Some types of bc cause cramping, just like when you get a period. Your body needs to get used to the hormones that are now in your body. Wait a month or two and if the cramps get worse or don't go away, then call and talk to your doctor.
