PMS symptoms and HBC - timing?

Thought I'd ask something I've been curious about for a while...

If you're on HBC, is it possible for PMS-type symptoms to start before you finish the active pills, or would any symptoms have to be triggered by the change in hormone levels caused by starting the inactive pills?

I could swear I've experienced the sort of illogical crankiness that PMS brings me when I haven't even finished the active pills. But that seems odd to me. I'm on a monophasic pill, so the hormone doses would be constant throughout the active pills. I assume the pills aren't COMPLETELY controlling my hormone levels, but still, is it possible/likely that there's enough variation to cause PMS symptoms before I finish the active pills? Has anyone else experienced any PMS symptoms before starting the inactive week?
