... like seasonale or jolessa. Prior to starting the pill I only had my period 3 times a year because I was very active in sports and and just over 100lbs. Ever since I started the extended-cycle my period has increasingly gotten lighter to the point of not needing tampons and I am also very active lifting weights. At the end of my last pack however there was no bleeding at all? Should I be concerned about pregnancy? I am 2 days into my next pack and have not called my doctor

If you have a very low body fat it can cause ammenorrhia. It would be best to talk to your Dr about it. If you are taking your Pills every day it is not so much a concern about pregnancy as it is unlikely-you should still be protected. It is more a concern of health. You may have too low a body fat count which is causing you to miss periods. This can be common in women who are athletic-runners, body builders etc.
