    Default Irregular periods whilst on the pill - normal?

    I've been on the pill for I guess 20+yrs, never had any problems with spotting etc. Always 28 day cycles apart from when I switched around with pills a few years ago but all went back to normal.

    But last month my cycle was 23 days and I bled for I guess 10 days, so it came 5 days early but stayed 5 days after as well if that makes any sense.

    Now for the second month it's a 25 day cycle.

    I've been on endep and have put on 10kgs in 7 months - some say it's because of the endep but it's all just sitting around my belly. I was underweight so I'm not concerned so much about putting on the weight. But the only thing that bothers me is that my belly looks pregnant (not a chance at all that I am), it's tender to touch as well.

    Is it normal to have irregular cycles sometimes on the pill for no apparent reason?

    I'd go to your GP with that question, perhaps ask for an ultrasound if you've got swelling and pain in your abdomen.
