... period takes a few days just to start up. And when it does, it's very different than what it used to be before. The blood doesn't seem normal- it's darker, much less in quantity, and more syrup-like in consistency. Also, I do not "menstruate" for more than just a day or two. It seems like the period is over before it even begins. I used to have heavy menstruation in the past, and now I barely use up a box of tampons every few months! I've been on Trivora for almost two years and I recently stopped just because I was becoming concerned about this. Is what I was experiencing normal, or was the pill wrecking my reproductive system?
