I've only been taking it for a week and around the 7th day I got extremely bad cramps and the next day my belly was so bloated I was uncomfortable. I'm wondering if its the pill or something else?
It is hard to say. Birth control pills can cause bloating but it is usually pretty mild. Are your bowels moving normally? It could be a digestive issue and it just coincidence it is happening as you begin your BCP's. If you havent had a bowel movement you might try a mild laxative like Miralax or a Senna product to see if it helps. If it continues to be a problem, you should see your Dr.
