Not at all
Advice & Tips:
I took various birth control pills for 4-5 years to help regulate my menstrual cycle. It did manage to bring on my period, but I suffered such intense pelvic pain 2 weeks before every period that I had to stop. The doctors thought it was IBS for a while, until we realized it was cyclical. The pains stops as soon as I stopped taking the pill. The pill adjusts all of our hormones, so just be aware in case you experience anything unusual for you (not based on what the doctor says other patients may experience, unusual for YOU).
