I have been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for over a year now (since October 2009), and in the past few months, I have noticed my periods have been changing. I used to always get my period on Thursdays, and in October or November, it came on a Wednesday, and now my periods always come on Wednesdays. More recently my periods have been VERY light compared to how heavy they used to be, even while on birth control. Starting birth control also took away a lot of my cramps, but lately the cramps have been worse, despite having a much lighter flow. I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced a change in periods on HBC after already being on it for over a year?
Also, if I put any pressure on my stomach, or even if my boyfriend has his arm resting on my stomach, it hurts a fair bit when it never used to. Is this something I should be worried about? This paired with the change in periods has me a little paranoid.
