I've been on the pill for 9 months now (combined) and since my first withdrawal bleeding I've noticed the consistency and smell of the flow were different from the periods I'd had before.
Mostly the smell. It doesn't smell of blood at all. In the beginning it smelled sort of sweet/vainilla-ish. Now it's only kind of sweet.
Has anyone noticed something similar in your periods while on HBC?
PD: The day I started taking the pill was one day my period had started, and my boyfriend and I laughed at the thought of my last "original" period. Periods on the pill turned out to be kinda different in some sense, in the end.
