So I recently started taking the pill (Reclipsen) and i was a few days shy of my period when I went to see the doctor for the prescription so she advised me to wait for my period so it wouldn't be irregular. I took her advice and when my period came, it was far from normal. The first few days were light and I thought I was "spotting" which worried me about being pregnant. Then towards the end my period was heavier than usual and a darkish red/brown. I have never experienced this before and it has me a little worried. On top of everything else, I am experiencing menstrual cramps and sensitive breasts post-period when usually those happen prior. Should I be worried? Or could these be symptoms from the pill?View Thread
