Oh no... AF!!

Back when I was in middle school and high school, I had the worst cramps ever. It was so painful I couldn't move. I would pass out, and be vomiting all day as well... When I finally went to the doctor for it, I was told to either go on the birth control pill (which I did until now) or have a baby. Well I was on the pill for 6 years, and here I am trying for a baby!
This is my first period after the first full cycle off the period. No baby unfortunately, and I forgot how horrible my periods are without birth control! I never thought I could actually feel anxiety over getting a period like this. Does anyone else get menstruation symptoms this severe?
