I have found that when women ask a question like this, it's usually because there are more factors they are not mentioning...like perhaps missing one, or several, pills during the cycle and engaging in unprotected intercourse.

Take a pregnancy test. That will answer your question.

It can also be normal to have periods like this on birth control. I know I did.

I would take a pregancy test just in case.

do you take your pills at the same time everyday? if you don't take them at the same time everyday they don't even work. Other factors can offset them? I'm not trying to be Judging Judy but are you married? If not, condoms should always be used even with birth control.

when I was on birthday control (HA BIRTHDAY)
When i first started I had normal periods but like a year after that I would only have them for three days. So you just started the birthcontrol?

If you didn't miss any pills, then it wasn't unprotected.

Alcohol doesn't usually affect periods.

Still...I think taking a pregnancy test is a good idea. Then at least you'll know for sure and you can just move on and start your new pack of pills as usual.

from my experience, i would recommend you take a pregnancy test this month and again next month if your period hasnt returned to normal.

i had an issue like this once. my period is very regular and predictable. and then one month it was much lighter and much shorter than it usually is. i took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. the following month, my period didnt come at all. took a test and it came back positive. once they did an ultrasound based on the size of the fetus, i was further along than they thought i was by a month. the wonky period i had wasnt actually a period and the pregnancy test gave me a false negative.

The pill can make you stop having periods altogether. I was on Loestrin for 3 mons. The first two, I had a really light period. The 3rd month I had none save for a bit of spotting. I thought this was because I have PCOS so I don't ovulate routinely as it is, but I've heard other Loestrin users say they had the same thing happen. So I don't know whether it's just this pill or that's a common thing with BC pills.

I'd take a test just to make sure, though.
