If you've correctly been taking your birthcontrol then you are protected even while on your period. The chances of you actually getting pregnant while on birth control and during your period are extremely small.

How long have you been on birthcontrol?

How long are you periods normally? Your period gets lighter after you've been on birth control for awhile. I've been on birth control for six months now and my period is only three days long so what you had sounds like a normal period to me.

Yes, it's possible to get pregnant, but given your circumstances it's highly improbable. Just birth control alone is 99% effective and you're not ovulating during your period.

If you're still nervous even when on birth control, use condoms and birth control, that way you'll be really safe Smile

Having your period end early is not a sign of pregnancy- and birth control might make your period shorter over time, like Maddie said.

Even if you had gotten pregnant while you had sex on your period, it would have taken two full weeks (not two days) for anything to happen.

Continue taking your birth control.

The chances that you are pregnant are really low. Like, less than 1%. And having a short period doesn't mean anything.

If you are this worried about pregnancy, perhaps in the future you should use condoms as well as the pill.

If you are ever concerned, you can take a pregnancy test two weeks after you had sex.
