Has your cycle changed??

I will be 27 in July and my cycles have always been the same unless I was on BC. So the cycle before this past one was my first cycle off of my last round of BC pills. It was 35 days long. This past cycle (just started CD 4) was 26 days. 26 days is early for me. I'm normally 28 earliest and 30 latest.

Do you think my cycle is starting to change with age? I've heard some say their cycle changed in their mid 20's. My af days have also become shorter. I used to be a 7 day period w/o bc pills. Now I'm 5 days w/o pills. This cycle my cramps came on day one and day two no cramps. I'm happy for the change in symptoms but it seems too early for shorter cycle's.

What's your take? For you ladies older then mid twenties did your cycle's change around that time?

I have always been on BC if I wasnt breastfeeding (with no periods), TTC or pregnant since I was 15 so I dont have anything to compare it too really.

Oh ok. I started my cycle at 10 and became regular at 12.

Quoting ShellBeth:

when I was younger, my periods were very irregular, long, and heavy! I had HORRIBLE cramps!  I got on BC at 18 and that regulated my periods.  They started getting irregular again at 27, so I got the mirena.  Still had weird periods on that and got off the mirena in August.  Now, my periods are more regular but my pms symptoms are completely different lol  I don't know if it's due to the fact that I've been on some type of bc for over 10 years or just cuz I'm 31. who knows? Doesn't sound like you have anything to worry about!
