Not worrisome.: Even if you are on the same BC, your periods can vary slightly. Also, there are many factors that can modify your period. Your diet, excercise, pshychological stress, physical stress, weight loss or gain, among others. You might want to review these and any other recent lifestyle change. This month, I believe your period is soon to come. If you become increasingly irregular, go to you gynecologist
