As you may have read, I missed my last period completely after 11 years of pill use (low dose), I have got one at the moment, but it is very light, I only had a bit of blood yesterday morning and light brown discharge today. Just wondering if anyone else who has been on the pill long term has had there periods go very light, I have all the normal period symptoms, the sore breasts etc, just hardly any blood!
This has happened quite a lot over the past 18 months!
i have been taking the pil for ten years and I never had a problem. Untill like three months ago. My period went back from five days to three, then from three to two days, and this time there is no blood at all. All three times I have taken a pregnancy test, and they were negative. I called the docter and she told me to have a blood test to rule out a pregnancy 100% and check hormonal levels. She thinks it is related to the pill and that it might be best to take a break and use other types of birthcontrol for a while. Friday is my appointment and I will know more. I would advise you to tell your docter what is going on and see what he/ she advices you. Good luck, and I will keep you posted
I am 30 years old. I have been on the pill since I was 15. Originally I was on ortho novum and when I turned 18 my period stopped. The doctor told me that was my body after being on the pill - and that if I wanted to have periods again I should change pills. But I had to stay off the pill until my cycles started again. This took a little over two years. After my cycles started again I got back on the pill. I now take otrho tri cyclen and I have not had any problems since.
Honestly, the pill does tend to decrease period menstrual flow quite a bit. Some women stop having their periods, or just have a very light one. It is not abnormal, but it is scary when you are used to the idea of no period=pregnancy... So it can scare you.. But it is normal.
I got off my birth control on oct 1. I had a normal period around the 7th and I didnt have one until november 22. That period was very very light. There was not enough to wear a tampon and there was no blood, it was just the brown discharge. That period, if you can call it that, lasted for about 2 1/2 weeks. I had no cramps either. Well I havent had a period since then and i've take 2 pergnancy tests and they both came up negative. So I dont think im pregnant. I was just wondering if this was normal after you get off birth control.
I went off birth control about a year ago. Ever since my periods have been very light. Now i have bleeding in the morning and nothing by afternoon. Its more like spotting. Is this normal after being on birth control for like 10 years?
I have been on zovia for four years. I am seuxally active and have always got my period on time. This month my boyfriend did ejaculate inside me three times. I have taken my pill everyday but when i got my period 2 days ago it was light and brown. I only used one panty liner up. Now its gone.We have been fighting more than usual and im thinking it could be light due to the amount of arguing and stress. Is there a chance that i could be pregnant?
Getting of birthcontrol pills, light period after?
Question, i was on birth controls pills for almost 6 months. I stopped taking them in July, i got my period normally, 5 days not so light, but light. In august i didnt get a period. In Sept i had intercourse, i got my period 2 weeks later b ut super light.Beging of Oct i got it again, and then i got it 2 weeks later. But the periods are very light, practically just brown discharge, like spotting. It can be from the pill riite?
I have been trying to get pregnany and stopped the pill at the beginning of september. I had been on the pill for ten years. My first cycle was 40 days and the period that I had, if you can call it that, was very very light. I am now on day 45 and no period and not pregnant. Anyone have any idea what is going on? Could this be side effects of long term birth control use?
I have been on the pill for 10 years too. I got off of it in September and since then I get a period every 27 days, but very light and brown. I am thinking this is a side effect of long term birth control. I hope I start to get a regular period again. Have you seen your doctor at all? I have an appt. for January and am going to ask her then what this is all about. Let me know if you hear anything.
I''m 25 and have been on a low dose pill for 5 years. This past year, my periods have just stopped. I get symptoms, irritability, sore breasts, but not blood. I shared this with my Dr. My Dr. says it''s ok and and that eventually the "thin lining" gets so thin that it doesn''t even form to give you a period.
Is this ok? The worst part is that I''ve bought quite a few pregnancy tests.
im 17 and have been on birth control for 4 years but ive never had sex...the birth control is just for my acne. but last month my period was only brown stuff and this month there was nothing at all...do you think it is a side effect from birth control and i should stop taking it?
