Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Some types of birth control can indeed trigger pain around the back, stomach, or even spread to the genitals or legs. An example is the spiral birth control (IUD). However, if this condition appears only as a side effect of birth control, then the pain will usually subside within 1 to 2 weeks of initial insertion, so it doesn't last long. Unfortunately, you did not explain what KB you are currently using, and since when you are using it. Therefore, we cannot judge whether the pain you feel right now is related to the birth control you are using, or not. However, in general, if an obstetrician has examined no serious abnormalities, then you shouldn't worry.
Pain around the back, which radiates to the abdomen and legs, can result from the following causes:
Fibromyalgia (generalized musculoskeletal pain that appears accompanied by mood disorders, memory, fatigue, and various other complaints) Pinched spinal nerves, can be due to herniation of the nucleus pulposus, tumors, infections, calcification, Pre menstrual syndrome, Kidney stones (nephrolithiasis) Kidney infection ( pyelonephritis) Irritable bowel syndrome Constipation (constipation) Fissure ani (tear of the anal wall) Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction, can be due to hardened stool, tumor) Deep vein thrombosis (obstruction of deep veins, due to blood clots) Endometriosis (abnormal growth of endometrial tissue outside uterus) Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sac that grows in the ovaries) Psychosomatic disorders, etc. You should check your complaint again with your doctor if nothing has improved at all after the doctor's previous treatment. If necessary, further examinations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, urine tests, etc. will be done by doctors so that appropriate treatment can be done in accordance with the underlying disease.
In the meantime, you can first continue taking the pain medication that your doctor gave you while getting more rest and reducing tiring activities first. Exercise regularly, maintain ideal body weight, and eat more regularly. Apply warm water to the sore on the back, stomach, and legs. Also wear comfortable clothes and footwear, not too narrow. Finally, manage your mind so you don't experience excessive stress.
Hope it helps ..
