I’ve been on the pill for 3 years now, and it isn’t uncommon for me to get pains around week 2 of my pills. Usually during this time my leg hurts but not really like hurts more like an annoying tingling feeling. Same goes for my abdomen. On the right side of my abdomen it tingles a bit. When I talked to my doctor about it, he said they are phantom pains. Because I may be scared after a terrible experience with ovarian cysts. I have regular ultrasounds and tests and everything seems to be completely fine. Does that mean they really are phantom pains? Can it be mittelschmerz? Or maybe side effects of the pill? Is there something I can do to slightly feel better about it?
