Taking pills for emergency contraception should not cause pain, so I think there is another reason for her pain.

Since she is in a lot of pain, I would recommend that she see a doctor.

You don't say where her pain is, but I assume it's somewhere in the pelvic area. It could be related to many things, but a ruptured ovarian cyst may be one of the more likely causes. If so, it can usually be confirmed by an ultrasound. Rest is usually the best treatment.

There are other possible causes for pelvic pain, including pelvic infection, appendicitis, intestinal infection, kidney stone, and more. It would require a careful history and exam to figure out what is causing her pain and nausea. Best wishes to you both.

What i meant is stomach cramps and Nassua. Not pain.. Shes very nauseous which is why i am contacting you wondering how long the side effect of nasua will last. she has no pelvic pain. she is suffering from stomach cramps and feeling like she will. Vomit . Please get back to me and let me know if there is anything for me that you would like to clarify
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

The nausea might be due to taking Yasmin, but taking those pills should not cause stomach cramps, so I suspect there is something else going on.

If the nausea is from the Yasmin, it should pass within 24 hours of taking the pills.

Stomach cramps and nausea suggest food poisoning, which often is self limited. If so, her symptoms will usually resolve soon on their own. However, I think other possible causes of her symptoms need to be ruled out, depending on how sick she seems.

I don't think there are any good meds for nausea that are over the counter, but a doctor can prescribe something once the cause has been figured out.

The only symptoms shes experiencing are strictly related to the Yasmin pills :
Headaches
Extreme Nassua
She takes motelium for her stomach but if theres no over the counter meds for Nassua what can she do to minimize the urge to vomit and the headaches?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

It may help her to keep some bland food (toast and crackers) in her stomach.

I doubt that the Yasmin has caused all her symptoms. There is something else going on.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Why is that?
She never took emergency contraceptives before and she has had generally a lot of sensitivity in her stomach as well as acidity for a long time.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

The nausea and headaches might be from the Yasmin. However, if they are, they should be gone within 24 hours of the last pills.

Some antacids may help.
