  • Early Period

    For the past few months, my periods have been very regular and very light because I'm on birth control, mainly because I used to have terrible cramps. I just had a period 2 and a half weeks ago and a few days ago, I started spotting a little bit. I didn't pay any mind to it, but today, I had really bad cramps and my period got really heavy. I haven't changed birth control or skipped/missed a day. Does anyone know what's happening?

  • It could be that you are still adjusting to the birth control. If you got a light period as soon as you start on birth control, then your body might need to clean itself out. Keep an eye on what's going on with your body, and if it doesn't get back to normal soon, see your doctor.
