Menstral period every 12 days?

So I started my period on July 1st and ended on July 6th, I have been on BC since my son was born well after 6 week checkup and he is now almost a year old. Things are normal with my periods and everything start at same time same flow etc, so the other day I get my period again July 17th but started out spotting and really bad cramping. then now my normal period flow so i assume its my period again..what could be causing this? I havent gone to the doctor yet since its the weekend but was thinking about going on monday if things werent better. Has anyone else had this happen? BTW I am on YAZ birth control pills if that helps.

  • You may need to try a new birth control.. I've heard alot of people have negative things like this happen while being on yaz (although I had a great experience being on it for 2 1/2 years..) so I'd really suggest you seeing your doctor.

  • Your probably should go to the doc. If you have never had that happen before it doesn't sound like your period. Yaz has higher rates of causing blood clots than other pills so that could be it, or it could be any one of a dozen other things. Better safe than sorry.

  • uterine fibroids could cause it

  • Watch out taking YAZ i had a lot of problems with it and i got my period for 3 straight weeks and the cramping lasted over a month. I stopped taking it when i started again less than a month after i stopped. But when i say watch out i have been seeing a lot of things about health problems with YAZ and there are a lot of lawsuits going against YAZ.
