I started my period on Christmas and today I was having

Hi my name is ***** ***** I started my period on Christmas and today I was having severe cramps. I tried taking 3 different medicines, took a hot Epsom salt bath, and tried an heating pad. Nothing is helping it. My mom scheduled me an appointment at my gynecologist for tomorrow. I am so scared to go because Ido not know what the doctor will say or do. I have very heavy periods and very bad cramps. I have also had ovarian cyst. They have prescribed me birth control pills three times already, but it did not help at all. So what will be the doctors next step. I am scared.JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?Customer: I am in extreme pain and yes my periods are regular. Nothing seems to help my periodsJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: They have put me on 3 different birth control pills in three years. Nothing seems to help my heavy bleeding and severe cramps
