Hi, First of all, thank you for being such a great resource through my teens and early 20s. You guys are great!
I have been on Ortho Tri Cyclen lo for 9 years, and besides a few exceptions in those 9 years, I take my pill the same time every day- including this month.
This is the first time that I've ever gotten my period on the first day of inactive pills. I've been under a lot of stress, but I have had stressful times before. Is this normal? Thanks!

So just so I"m clear: you're saying that you usually get the withdrawal bleed later in the week of inactive pills?
There is nothing whatsoever wrong or unhealthy about getting it the first day of the inactive pill week.
