This is my first month on birth control. I have one more pill left to take before starting a new pack, but I still do not have my period. I had a very slight spotting. Almost like a smear, but that was all. However, I've felt like I was getting my period and I've had breakouts, zits, and a noticeably more about of discharge...is it normal to miss a period on birth control? My periods have always been very irregular. I had sex once after being on the pill for about 2.5 weeks, and a condom was used.
You are perfectly fine! Birth control is horomones, and your body will take a few months to adjust. When you are on the pill you don't have a "period" you have what they call a withdrawl bleed. So, your body is just adjusting to, and getting used to the extra horomones.
Good for you, using a condom. You really should your first month and after that you are protected as long as you follow the guidelines and take one pill around the same time every day.
So...I have nothing to worry about? It just seems weird to me missing a period. I thought birth control was supposed to regulate it. I am generally a very paranoid person though, which is the cause of my worries. Thank you for your help! (:
I understand your worry. We are all taight missed period = pregnancy. But its normal to have irregular periods when you start the pill. After a few months it will regulate it, and should come like clockwork. If you are really paranoid take a couple home pregnancy tests, but i am sure you are okay.
