Hi, I am also so glad to have found this topic. Since I was 13, I've had horrible cramps, pms, and like a 6 day heavy flow. I have been on BC for the past five or so years, and hardly ever get a period or any symptoms of my period anymore (slightly concerning, but I wasn't going to complain). I was on day 9 of my W30 when I woke up feeling crappy, ravenous, headachy and tired. I had had a massive charley horse the night before (which has never happened to me, and took some ibuprofen, so I thought it might be that). But then (sorry if this is TMI) went to the bathroom and realized I was bleeding a little bit, like spotting...interesting, a sign of a period! It hadn't even occured to me. I also have acid reflux and the symptoms were HORRIBLE like nothing I have had before, last night. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this? So, while not bad, I would say that my menstraul symptoms are WORSE right now. Although, I will feel WAY better if they go away after my period does and I know that's what it was.
