Unhappy Worried about my period. Could this mean I'm pregnant?

So I'm on Apri birth control and I usually always get my period on the 3rd day of my week 4 pills. Last month I got my period on day 5 and it was very light and basically just spotting. Naturally my periods are on the heavier side, and I've never had a period that light and short. What could this mean? I haven't had any change in diet, exercise, stress, or sleep. My periods usually last 5 days and this last one was probably 2 days. I last had sex around August 28th and my last "period" was Sept. 12-18th but only sorta lasted 2 of those days

Re: Worried about my period. Could this mean I'm pregnant?

It doesn't mean anything. That's not a side effect, that's a benefit that many women have from being on the pill - shorter and lighter periods. If I were you I'd consider myself very lucky to have that because not all of us had any luck with making that happen with the pill.

When in doubt, do a home pregnancy test.
