I am on Kariva BC and have been for about a year. This is about the fourth BC pill I am on, I have had problems finding a good fit. This one hasn't been too bad, I still get bad cramps and a heavy flow, but it's at least somewhat consistent.
I don't take my placebo pills until next week, but it seems that I am already starting my period, it started yesterday. I haven't had sex since July (and I am a perfect pill taker, and a condom was used) so I can't say I'm really worried about pregnancy or something. But it started as brown discharge, but now it is actually a flow. Cramps and everything. Should I be concerned? I'm guessing there is a chance that I'm going to have a two week long period which sucks. I recently changed anti depressants, I'm on Effexor, could that affect it?
