birth control and period

I am 8 weeks post partum, and stopped breastfeeding 4 weeks ago. i have been on the pill for 2 weeks now and am starting to bleed. could it be my period? i thought that while on the blue pill my period wouldnt start until i started the white pills. should i continue with the blue and take them like planned or take the white pills now? its not very heavy, so maybe spotting? but its enough to use a tampon or a lite pad.

  • your period will not be regular for a while post partum, and it will also be irregular while adjusting to the new birth control. just take it how you're supposed to

  • When starting birth control, it takes awhile for your period to get on track and to only come with the white pills. There could also be breakthrough bleeding in between periods. There should be a set of directions with your birth control. You should read them, it will tell you everything you need to know.
