Women can totally pull each other’s cycles off. I don’t know if it happens when you’re on BC or not, but without BC…yep!  I used to get yanked off schedule by a few days every time I went home for a longish vacation ;). We settled into a schedule though so it wasn’t always off. 

As far as doctors have ever told me, as long as the post ovulation length doesn’t vary by more than 3 days, the pre-O can vary quite a bit and be perfectly normal, so a lot of times periods don’t come exactly on schedule. 

My mom is also premenopausal and has periods here, there, and everywhere, but she didn’t pull me off schedule last time we were together for a while. Maybe not all the menopause hormones can do it…not Sure. Interesting question though! Maybe some of the other bees know.

alyssaC:  As I’ve been getting older (I’m 33 now), my period decided it was going to keep moving a day back (first placebo pill on Sunday and I used to get my period on Monday). Now most times it waits till about Wednesday night!! I’m much, much lighter than I used to be too. Maybe it’s from being on the pill since I’m 18.

I agree it’s possible that your period is affected due to your mom’s changes. I remember when I started getting cramps, my sister did also (she was NOT happy about that)!

I would kill to have a regular cycle though. My periods are completely unpredictable and range between 31-46 days between the start of the cycle over the past 1.5 years I’ve been writing it down. 🙁
