Early periods on birth control?

I'm on birth control and I started my period almost a week early, is this normal? I'm sexually active & I've been on birth control for about a year now and this has never happened.

I would like to know about this too. I have been on the pill for years and I missed two pills in week 3 of my pack and got my period a week early. I am scared I am pregnant. Please help!

What kind of birth control pill are you on? I have been on both Tri-Spintec (generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen) + Ortho Try-Cyclen Lo, and I know that if you miss 2 or 3 days of the pills, it will give you an early period. Were you taking it consistently before those days that you missed? And did you have sex after those missed pills?

Either way, I think that it is probably because you missed those two pills, but if you want to know for sure go pick up a pregnancy test.
