... I have been on Seasonal for 4 years and never before experienced any breakthrough bleeding. I have recently gone on the Atkins diet and have been on it consistently for 4 weeks now and just experienced breakthrough bleeding for the VERY FIRST time since I started taking Seasonale. I am wondering why I suddenly have breakthrough bleeding when I have not experienced that EVER before. Could it be the change in my diet causing the early period?

Hi, yes it could. Last year i went on a diet, lost 2 stone and my periods stopped for months, then i would have an odd day of bleeding, then stop again. Excessive dietry changes will affect your menstrual cycle. If you are worried, contact your GP, or try a different diet. Sorry nothing else i can suggest.
