So you just recently switched from a monthly period pill to a few times a year pill?

 Any time you switch, expect to have a little crazy go on with your schedule!

@T-Rex: I’ve never done that but as far as I know it’s common to experience some changes cause you’re body’s not used to that hormone. If you went from a X times a year period pill to a Y times a year period pill it’s predictable your body it’s gonna take some time to adjust.

Keep in mind that when you switch BC the change in your body might make the first couple of months “unsafe”.

Things changed slightly for me when I did the same thing, but on the same pill (I just ignore the placebo pills and immediately start a new pack).  I wouldn’t be too concerned, your withdrawal bleed (not a period, it’s a pet peeve of mine!) will probably overtime become consistent.  Even with the BCP though, sometimes I can feel my hormones go slightly out of whack, but I was put on it for that reason in the first place.
