Lower Stomach Pain After Taking Birth Control Pills?
afternoon, I want to ask. I am currently taking the KB pill. this is my first time using a contraceptive device. after 6 days of drinking, the lower abdomen is parallel to the lumbar bone that hurts the right side. the pain is not painful or prolonged, but a thin pain when pressed. yesterday the pain went left. why is that?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition you are experiencing is most likely not related to the history of contraception you are using. Birth control pills are indeed one of the hormonal contraceptives that have certain effects when used, but the effects are usually in the form of weight gain, irregular menstruation, the appearance of acne, and mood swings. Even if there is pain, it is more pain related to the menstrual cycle, not pain that arises when the stomach is pressed.
So the condition that you experience is likely to occur due to several other diseases, such as:
Urinary tract infection
Stomach acid disease
And maybe other diseases that can be known, must be examined directly first. Our advice, you should immediately consult a doctor, no need to fear hearing a dangerous diagnosis because the symptoms you are experiencing are most likely caused by a mild condition. But even though it is mild, a direct examination is still needed to confirm the condition. Your doctor may then ask you to do a urine test to make a conical possibility, and treatment later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, multiply the consumption of water, reduce the consumption of food and beverages such as cabbage, cabbage, mustard greens, nuts and soft drinks, compress the stomach with warm compresses, do not resist urination, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
