And last month (which was my first month on birth control), I had a heavy period, and it's worrying me. I'm on my third placebo and this has been happening since Sunday.
Sometimes potting is all the period you get. Dont worry. If you are taking the Pill correctly, you are protected. It reduces the uterine lining and so periods can get lighter and spotting can be all that occurs. It can take several months before you regulate out what your cycle will be like on the Pill. In the early months, you may have a very heavy period then a very light one or vice versa but after 4-6 months on the Pill, it should regulate out to how it is going to be. Since you bled heavy last time, there may be less lining to shed this time or you may start getting heavier as the week goes by. Just start your next pack on time no matter what your bleeding is like. You are fine, no worries!
