Light periods on the pill

I am currently on orthocyclen, and for as long as i can remember my periods have been very light and the last two months they have only lasted 2 days and 3 days. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Yes it is normal. My periods on the pill used to be like that before I had my second child.

  • Oh, I miss Ortho TriCyclen for that reason! I was so used to 2-3 days of spotting as the whole period. Now I'm stocking up on super tampons each month. And yes, that's really common.
