Some people only come on for 4 days and some peoples menstrual cycle changes when they are on some sort of medicated contraception. Speak to ur GP if u are really worried to be honest but it does sound normal. My friend was on the pill for a couple of months and she never had a period for a few months after and she wasn't pregnant. Good luck!
Periods are supposed to be lighter when on the Pill.
I'm using nuvaring, not the pill. And thank you both for your comments!
Also, my period has always been very light/nearly not there after the first day. Even before I began birth control
Well, what that suggests is that you don't have a super-thick uterine lining during your period. I'd suggest that finally when you want to get pregnant, you go see an RE ("fertility specialist') and have him monitor a cycle, and see how thick your lining gets. He or she might want to supplement your estrogen to thicken it up. But that would only be once you are ready to get pregnant.
So are you saying I could have trouble gettin pregnant on my own? Without a fertility specialist?
Well, no guarantees -- don't use the lightness of your periods as birth control. :) I'm just saying that in your shoes, the day I decided it was time to start actively trying to get pregnant, I would see my ob-gyn and explain that my light periods make me wonder if my uterine lining gets thick enough during my cycle to support a pregnancy, and ask for an ultrasound around day 10 and another one at day 25, to see how thick the lining gets.
Well thank you very much! If it doesn't get thick enough, is that a easy fix? Like with hormones or whatever?
My periods are only four days, one or two normal days and then light. I had a miscarriage in 2008- not planned, a beautiful healthy daughter in 2010- planned and I've just had a twin ectopic in May/June- planned, conceived first try. So getting pregnant wasn't really hard :) Miscarriages unfortunately are common, and the ectopic is very rare, so don't panic about my unfortunate history xx
I'm sure you'll be fine girl. Later on down the road if you're having complications that's when to worry. You're so young. Enjoy your life!
Thank you guys so much! All this information has put my mind much more at ease. Well minus the miscarriage talk! I'm sorry to hear that, it's unfortunate, but congrats on the healthy baby girl! And thanks so much ladies!
