Birth Control!: Actually, you may have answered your own question. There are different types of hormonal birth control. Some have estrogen and progestin, others just progestin. Both are capable of altering a cycle and causing sore bresats as your body "adapts" to the medication. It is usually nothing to stress about. Keep with your bc plans, and use it as directed.

Late period led to bad painful period. When lie down, seem to swell on right side of ovary. Doesn't hurt. Just swells and is quite firm. Any thoughts?

Not enough info: It's hard to judge how long this has been going on, and what imaging has been done.

You want this documented, so you know what your baseline is if this is a chronic situation. Need this to compare. Then, you'll have your answer. ...Read more
