The last time I had sex was about 2 weeks ago. I just got my period Monday night, but it only lasted until Tuesday night. I am on the pill and it usually lasts about 4-5 days. It looked like my normal period so I don't know if this means I'm pregnant. Can some one please help me and give me an answer I am so nervous

Lauren, It is not normal to get pregnant if you take your pills as prescribed. If you have any doubts, take a pregnancy test and repeat it 7 days later to confirm the result.

Best of luck!

one day period
I had one day periods two months in a row. Should this be a concern?

Dyan, Not really. Most birth control hormones have the following good side effects for most woman:

* Regular cycles
* Light bleeding
* Short bleeding
* Less PMS
* Clearer skin

Some of the modern pills will even make your bleeding almost totally disappear or even disappear. This is not thought to be harmful in any way.

Take care!
