Should you period come early when you're on birth control?

Mine has been coming sooner and sooner.

It depends on your birth control. Most birth controls affect your hormones which can cause your period to be late or early. You may try switching your birth control to get your period back to normal.

Birth control effects everyone's body differently, sometimes it takes a while for your period to adjust to the birth control, but having your period earlier is something that you should mention to your doctor, she might recommend that you try a different form of birth control or make sure that you are taking it correctly.

That can sometimes happen. Often stress or changes in environment can cause periods to come sooner than they are meant to.

Your period should start the day you start taking the placebo or iron pill. If it's starting when you're still taking the birth control pill, you are either experiencing break-through bleeding, which happens when you take your pill at different times each day or miss a pill all together. Or, you might be having other problems- go to a doctor.
