Re: Why did I start my period early this month???
Sometimes taking the Pill at not exactly the same time each day will do that. For instance, say you usually take it about 10pm before bedtime, but weren't home or forgot to take it until 1 or 2am, that could disrupt the hormonal steadiness. I found when I was on the Pill, that usually by the time I had taken about 10 days of pills, I would have breakthrough bleeding. It wasn't that bad, but I would finish the pack while still having the bleeding and it would just work into a regular period. That was one of the reasons I didn't like the Pill for myself.
Also, perhaps you need a different strength or brand of pills. Best to call your doctor and see what is suggested. Sometimes you can just talk to a nurse and she can provide the answers for you. I really wouldn't worry too much about it, it's fairly normal. But like I said, maybe just to put your mind at ease, call your doctor for some advice. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
As a side note, make sure you keep taking your pills as if you didn't have a period; in other words, finish the pack of pills. You'll probably get another period when you were supposed to also.
