So I'm very recently going through a divorce and have lost 10 pounds in about a month...20 pounds since winter.

One of the main reasons I wanted to start birth control was to regulate my period and I've been on the same birth control, Yasmin, for over 3 years and have never had a problem with it.

So, while on my 2nd week of pills, I started spotting brown. Then came a medium flow period, which has never happened to me before while taking the active pills...I usually get my period on the 4th week of nonactive pills.

I've had a light/medium flow period/spotting for the past week and a half which is way longer than normal. But, I've been under an immense amount of stress lately, not eating the way I usually do (in fact hardly eating), and not sleeping the greatest. I just want this period to end already!

Does this kind of thing happen during a really stressful time?
