It's normal for period symptoms to vary from time to time. And, if you have just started taking a BC pill, that is likely to cause some changes in your menstrual cycle.

You'll want to figure that it is going to take your body a few months to really get in the groove with a pill, and that you will tend to have more side effects in that time, and also will most likely have some weirdness in your menstrual cycles.

After those first few months, things should settle down, though.
