Im 21 and I have taken birth control pills for years (since I was 17). But I stopped taking them in the middle of last year for financial reasons. I recently started them again about 2 weeks ago but within the first few days of the first week my nipples became dry and hurt to the touch and continue to be as painful today. Also I get lower abdominal cramps and my lower abdomen is bloated beyond belief. I always have unprotected sex with my bf and the last time was 2 sundays ago...
