Just wanted to run this by folks to see if it's happened to anyone else, or if it's something I need to be concerned about. I'm 31 and have been on some form of ortho tri-cyclin for about 10 years, exercise regularly and eat fairly healthy. My period has always been very regular, but this month I experienced an "extra period" -- almost exactly halfway through my cycle, I got another period. Definitely was heavier than spotting, maybe slightly less heavy than my usual period. It started out brownish then turned to the usual dark red/brown combo. Then, I got my regular period as scheduled a couple weeks later.
Nothing was really different for me this month -- I'm kind of stressed out at work but nothing keeping me up at night. I've been in a monogamous relationship for over a year and my most recent pap smear (2 months ago) came back normal.
I guess these things happen sometimes, but since I'm on the pill I was surprised by the irregularity. Would love to hear any feedback! Thanks.View Thread
Thank you Jane! I figured this wasn't a big deal but thought I would check. You know, I did take a pill about a day late just before this happened. Usually I'm very good about taking it right around the same time every day but that day I was unexpectedly away from home. Maybe that's why my body was funky this month. Thanks again!View Thread
