I started taking Alesse about 5 months ago. The first two months my period would always start three days before the placebo pills but I just assumed that was my body adjusting to the new cycle still. The third and fourth month it came just one day before placebo pills and then this month it started three days early again. I always take my pills on time, but I did take one two hours late right at the end of the active pills this month. Would two hours make enough difference for my period to start early? Is this normal or am I not getting the full protection? How can I make my period start on time?!
