Hello I have been having the most unbareable menstrual cycles

Patient : Hello I have been having the most unbareable menstrual cycles they are short but extremely painful to were I can't move. But today I noticed my blood clots were really dry dark red and light pink. The light pink parts smell like an infection. What could this be?
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. Usually birth control pills can decrease the pain during me nstruation by leading to anovulatory cycles. As you are having pain while using birth control pills, the possible causes of your dysmenorrhea are pelvic inflammatory disease, adenomyosis, uterine polyps or fibroids etc. By clinical examination and investigations like ultrasound, the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated. So, please do consult your doctor and get examined. Take care
