I've been on the pill for 4 years now and my periods have always been pretty much the same and usually 5 days long. At first they started on Mondays, then Tuesdays...then Wednesdays and now for the past several months, Aunt Flo is showing up on Thursdays! They are starting to continue into my active pills which has never happened before - is this something to worry about? I mean, isn't main reason behind having the placebo pill to let you have a period? If so, shouldn't I only have my flo while taking them (I can understand going into Sunday, but Monday...really?)

I know abnormalities can occur when you forget a pill, and to be quiet honest I do tend to forget, on average, once a month. Can that be the cause?

Sorry for the delay! There a many reasons why periods can fluctuate. As you grow older things can change some. I dont see that missing a pill a month would be a cause by itself. If it keeps changing , you can always ask you Dr. or a nurse about it.
