Period 10 days early lasting 9 days while on birth control for 2 months. What is causing this?

Low dose?: It's possible that you are on a low dose birth control and the hormones in the birth control, while able to prevent pregnancy, aren't able to overcome the hormones related to your period that your own body is making.

I had a period and then stopped my birth control because I ran out. Then had a period 10 days early. Is this normal?

Could be: It can take a while to resume normal periods after stopping birth control pills. Bleeding at what would have been mid-cycle could be due to the hormonal swings at the time of ovulation or can be due to an infection or abnormal cervical cells. Discuss this when you go in to nget a new prescription for your pills. Your exam must be due if your prescription has run out. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Period 10 days early. Severe cramping focused on my lower right hand side. No history of early periods but history of abnormal paps.?

Likely normal: The change in your menstrual cycle is likely to be a normal variation. Do follow up with PAP tests as recommended by your doctor.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
