I have been taking ortho tri-cyclen lo for a month now. I have received my first period but it is much different than I usually have. I have been on pills in the past and have never experienced anything abnormal with my periods. I am experiencing a much lighter period. When I say lighter I mean barely anything on my pad...I only see blood when I wipe. Thats not a problem for me. That is just different. The problem comes in with the cramping. I've never had cramping with my periods in my life and this period I have had very bad cramps. They are lasting days too. Plus I have had breast soreness and bad nausea. All of this is very much like the pregnancy symptoms I experienced with my 2 children. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this while taking ortho tri-cyclen lo?
