Hi and thank you for your question. There can be many reasons for an unexpected period. Topping the list is a change in your cycle due to stress.. which could be emotional or it could be physical ( like when you get sick with a cold or become especially worn out) A miscarriage is also a possibility. If you contiue to have heavy bleeding you should be seen by your Gynecologist. I hope this information helps. Please let me know if I cna help further:-)

I forgot to mention that I'm on birth control and I've been taking it correctly... does that change anything?

Irregular bleeding can occur while on the pill, but if you have been taking it properly, the likelihood of a miscarriage is slim to none. I would still check with the Doctor, he may want to change your prescription.
