DD is 14. She started her periods not quite to years ago. At first she didn't have too many problems but for the last year she has had horrible cramps. In bed, crying, throwing up on occasion etc. This lasts one to two days. She also feels somewhat miserable with nausea and mild cramps a few days before. I took her to the dr a few months ago and we decided to try Naproxen (prescription Aleve). It helps take the edge off but that's about it. The dr said if that didn't work, we'd try birth control (I have no moral objections to that, so that's not a concern). I had the same issue as a teen and when I started on bc pills (for actual bc) the difference was like night and day. Has anyone's daughter used birth control pills and if so how did it effect blood sugar control? Any input is appreciated.
