This month my period came a day late. Should I be worried?

I've been on Yasmin for nearly 4 years. I take my pill everyday at roughly the same time (no more than 30 minutes late). My period has always come on a Saturday (afternoon or early evening) but this month it came on Sunday midnight (Dec 27). The first 12 hours of my period is very light (brown spotting) but by Sunday dinner time the flow seemed to resume to what it normally is. Then I have a full period till Wednesday (Dec 30) when I start my active pill again.

Because my period did not arrive on Saturday I took a pregnancy test on Sat afternoon and it was negative.

Should I be worried at all?

Nope. Nothing strange there.

Thanks for your reply. I'm worried because there was no premenstrual syndrome this time (I usually had migraine before my period and I take it as a sign). I did have a very bad migraine on Sunday when the flow of my period started to resume. Could it be due to a change of diet? I got a coffee maker last month and started drinking more coffee than I normally do.

Thank you again!

Yasmin has been known to cause strange things for lots of women. I honestly wouldn't worry about it. Whenever you're on any pill, regardless how long you've been on it, side effects can happen any time. Or not. It doesn't mean anything. I really wouldn't even give it a second thought.
