Probably not: It is common for the nature of the menstrual cycle to change with time. That is the likely explanation for the changes you have noticed. The progesterone is only produced for about 12 to 14 days each cycle and is partly responsible for the PMS symptoms but that is related to the increasing progesterone level - not a decreased level. Most women have fewer symptoms while taking the Pill.
