Should see doctor: Birth control pills (contain hormones) can be used to help other conditions besides birth control. The pills can help women with acne, frequent periods, heavy periods, painful periods, etc... If a woman wants medication for menstrual pain, a primary care doctor or Ob-Gyn doctor can help, after an evaluation to be sure nothing unusual is happening in the body. "Excruciating pain" needs treatment.
