I have been on this pill for BC & to regulate my period. I've been on it for about one year now & my periods became lighter & lighter, & I now have no period. I also feel back pain & a little cramping but no other PMS symptoms. Is this normal when on this pill?

Same thing happened to me. I've been on it for 11 years and never had a period. I went back to the obgyn just to make sure that it's normal and I was assured that everything was fine. So don't worry. You're 1 out of the few women who's just lucky to not have a period. As soon as you get off of it, your period will be back. I know because I tried it. So just enjoy!
Bear in mind though that no two bodies are the same, and each person reacts differently to the same medication. However, from what you wrote it seems like you're in the same boat with me. If you still need reassurance, ask your obgyn and he/she will tell you the same. ;)
