early visitor
i'm not terribly concerned...but....my period has been pretty regular since i started my new b/c 2 months ago. i had my boys almost 22 months ago, mirena for 16 months after that, yaz for 3 months (that's when we found out i can't really deal with the extra hormones and estrogen) so now i'm on the mini pill (for 2  months, it's the progesterone only pill) and my period has arrived a week and a half early. so far it's a normal period. heavy flow, clots, cramps, moodiness...normal. it's just it being early that bothers me. i've had it show up a day or two early but never a week and a half.

should i be concerned and contact my ob or am i being a worry wart?

Hope this helps I will provide the l website I got this off of so you can check out the info

PROGESTERONE ONLY PILLS – THE MINIPILL  Side Effects
  
• Changes in menstrual cycle are common, and although not a problem, are the most
frequent cause of pill discontinuation. Periods may come late or early, and spotting
and missed periods may occur.
• Other side effects are rare, and usually are not serious: breast tenderness, nausea,
headaches, dizziness, increased appetite and weight gain, acne, and increased facial
or body hair growth. See your clinician if you are troubled by these problems.
• Women on the minipill have a slightly increased risk of developing ovarian cysts or
ectopic pregnancies than women on combination birth control pills. Therefore, severe
lower abdominal pain on one side with or without menstrual changes should signal a
visit to the Student Health Center to rule out these conditions.
