I ended up taking the other 1/2 of the vicodin pill which took away most of the pain, but then I couldn't fall asleep till 2:30am! Then at 5:30am I could feel the cramps coming back. I took my Prednisone a little after 6am and I swear that took them away. I swear it must be the drop in hormones when taking the Pred and stopping the birth control pills for a week. I should have just kept taking the birth control pills, but I had cancer cells in my endocervix last fall and I suppose feel like I need to 'flush it all out' every few months just to get any 'bad' cells out that might be hanging around. I'm sure its irrational but I definitely don't want the cancer cells coming back.
I will be more than happy to not have my period till sometime in Oct after this! The worst part is, on Prednisone I really barely even have it, other than the cramps. :(
