The spots that are on your face is acne
. The cramps you're describing sounds horrible but unfortunately about 90% of women have some kind of pain during their period. There are many birth-control pills on the market. They will lighten your menstrual cycle and can be used to make them disappear entirely. The nurse or gynecologist can explain things to you. It will take a couple months for your body to get used to the pills. You may experience some spotting or irregular bleeding and some women don't have much of a cycle at all. It is a wonderful choice. Side effects are very rare. They usually involve blood clotting. If there's no family or personal history of bleeding disorders early heart attacks blood clots
in the long or legs, I wouldn't worry. I would not recommend taking up cigarette smoking
as this will increase the risk. There is no harm or side effect or induction of any cancer. Indeed using the pill may decrease your risk of endometrial cancer
and benign breast disease
. What was natural up until the industrial age was for women to be either pregnant or lactating most of their lives-not having a menstrual cycles all the time. I put my own daughter on birth control pills when she was still in middle school to treat acne and painful menses. Fortunately she outgrew it but not for a decade. Without intervention it would've been a long 10 years.
