Question Question on BC Pills and my period

I have been on Yasmin for 6 months, and before that I was on the depo shot for over 2 years. I got my period back after my first month on the pill, and the past couple of months my period has been only 2 to 2 1/2 day's long, and I don't get my period until the very last day of my pack the Saturday white reminder pill and then on Monday I am done. Is this normal? Before I was on the depo shot I was on the pill and I always got my period the Sunday of my last week of pills (the white reminder)and it lasted 4-5 day's And also my friend told me that I can get pregnant while taking the white reminder pills since I don't have my period that whole week. Is there any truth to that?Any help with this would be great. Thanks.

Amb -

It seems ok. Every woman is different. I don't know much about Yasmin, but if you are concerned, give your doc a call.

Also, if it were true that a woman could get pregnant while taking the inert pills, every woman who has ever taken the pill would have likely gotten pregnant at one point or another.

I suggest calling your doc, making an appt., and asking him all the questions you have about this. Good luck!

I stopped taking the pill about a month ago and was supposed to start my period this past Wednesday (it's Sunday) but have been spotting (brown, not red) but still have PMS symptoms. Does anyone know if this is normal?

First of all, its NOT true that you can get pregnant on the 'reminder' pills. Birth control prevents ovulation all together, so even though you're taking pills with no hormones in them, you aren't ovulating so it doesn't matter. Those past three weeks of hormome pills surpressed your ovulation.

It's normal to experience a lighter period on birth control. Some women totally lose their period. I wouldn't really worry about it. Consider yourself lucky that you get such a light period :P
