So, I haven't had a real period in two months. I'm on the pill. At the time I'm supposed to have a period..I have all the symptoms, cramps, tired, headaches, crabbiness...etc. But I have only one day that I have very little bleeding...spotting really. I don't even have to use a tampon. What could this be? Any suggestions?
I had no periods for 1 year AFTER i went off the Pill and had to take Prometrium to induce a period. I know that isn't the same as your issue. I know after a while that some women stop having a period all together while on the Pill. I'd consult your MD.
These posts always confuse me because a huge reason why women go on the pill in the first place is to get shorter and/or lighter periods. Some women are lucky enough to not get a period at all while on the pill. I always thought it would be awesome to only have one day of very light bleeding every month. And I have trouble understanding why it's such a huge concern for so many women.
If you really are bothered by having such a light period then you can always switch your pill to something that will give you more of a period. But I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would want that. I'm so tired of my period being so heavy all the time I would love to have your problem!
While I don't enjoy having a period, I'm basically concerned that there may be some sort of issue, hormonally or otherwise. I'd like to have a child sometime which I can't do if I don't have a period. That is why I asked.
