whats the deal?

so i swear i am asking this for a friend. She started BC 3 months ago (she just started month4) now before she was on it her period was only like 4 days. She said this month it was completely on and off for 3 days and it was really really light. She went to the doc for a BP check since she just started pills and her doc didnt seem concerned. Has this ever happened to any of you?

  • dont you love how the assholes are always "anonymous"?? anyway, to answer your question, some ppl do get lighter prds when on BC pills. part of the draw to it! i have horrible periods normaly, and on the pill they are not near as bad. still heavy, but near as painful. anyways, tell your "friend" that she is fine. if she stops all together, call the doc. she might be on a too high a dose.

  • i used to have REALLY bad periods before i got on bc..since ive been on it my periods have gotten down to 3 days and really light that i would only be able to wear a tampon for maybe half a day and then it would be too light to wear..
