Is my cold medicine changing my menstrual cycle?

This seems crazy, but every time I take OTC cold medicine containing phenylephrine my period starts as soon as I stop taking it.  This happens every time regardless of when in my cycle the cold starts.  (This is not a PMS false-cold thing.)  I'm not sure it's the phenylephrine, but it seems to only happen with this family of cold medicine.  If I "tough it out" or take other types of OTC meds, it doesn't seem to happen.  So far, I have found absolutely nothing whatsoever to explain it, or heard of it happening to anyone else.  Am I losing it? or is there some sinister interaction happening here?
