  • Weird Cycles

    Okay so I've been on Yasmin for about um, 6 years now I believe. My cycles have been really random lately... They have been starting a date later and usually only lasting about 3 days....

    Is this something that just happens finally after an extended stint on BC or could this be stress related? I feel like stress shouldn't affect my cycle as much since it isn't a "true" cycle on BC??

    Thoughts??

  • Maybe a little of both? Stress, no matter what, always causes my cycles to go cuckoo. However, I did notice the longer I was on the pill, the lighter and shorter my cycles were. Towards the end, they were only lasting a day or two, very very light, barely spotting for a few hours then over and done with.

      I am assuming that is what it is for now... I mean, it's not like it's the first month. They have been this way probably for about 4-5 months... But I guess that (along with the stress) would also throw off the dates since they would be getting shorter. Not that I'm complaining about shorter cycles by any means

      I just have a concert to go to tonight, so it'd be nice if it were going to start, if it'd do it **before** I go!
