“I started taking birth control about a week ago and the day after i started taking the pill, i felt pain in my left thigh. my thigh kept hurting for about 5 days and it got a little swollen and puffy. then on the 6th day it didn’t hurt as much. Now i have been on the pill for about a week and 2 days and my thigh doesn’t really hurt anymore. Should i still go in to the Family planning center and get it checked out just in case??”
A: If you are still having pain and are concerned we recommend calling and making an appointment at the Family Planning clinic or with your health care provider.
