Hello and welcome!

In my opinion, it's nothing to worry about. Your body changes over time and your body's reaction to the pill will also change. Sometimes good (lighter periods), sometimes bad (acne). I had been on the pill for many years when all of a sudden, I was experiencing monthly yeast infections. I hadn't changed pills, nothing was different. I stopped the pill and the infections stopped too.

You may also want to post this on the Birth Control board and see if any other ladies have experienced the same thing.

You can also call your doctor. Doesn't hurt to ask!
