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
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
