I am trying to take a contraceptive pill (levlen) to


Q: I am trying to take a contraceptive pill (levlen) to regulate my cycle as well as help clear up my skin. I have been talking this pill for just over a week and am starting to experience mild cramping and tingling up and down both legs as well as some stiffness in my hips. This happened the previous time I tried to use the pill (diane) with symptoms stopping shortly after I stopped taking it. I was wondering why this could be happening, and whether or not it's worth again trying a different type of contraception pill or persevering with it?
