  • I don't know if it can affect your cycle but I know it can significantly decrease the effectivness of your birth control pill if you are on one. I wish you the best either way it turns out :)

  • It can mess with your birth control, making it less effective, that's how my 2 year old was conceived. I don't know if it messes with your actual cycle tho.
