what does it meam when you have a one day period that is very light while on the mini pill

The length of the first period after the pill is unpredictable. While you're on the pill, the hormones decrease the amount of menstrual flow. You can expect longer and heavier periods, returning to your previous pattern, after you stop the pill.

When you're on the birth control pill, you have the same protection when you're bleeding and when you're not, as long as you're using the pill as directed.

Your period should not be delayed from missing a single pill.

Yes it is a side effect of the pills suppressing ovulation - many woman have no period while taking the pill.

If you are taking antibiotics, and you got your period while being on the pill, you want to continue to take your pill. Keep in mind that being on antibiotics can lower the affect of the birth control pill.

If you don't get your period while taking the pill, nothing happens and this is nothing to worry about. Many women find that their periods are lighter or disappear altogether when they are taking the pill.

User Avatar

most of the time when you take your mini break from the pill you will have your period then or maybe while you are on the pill this can not harm you. so you should not stop taking the pill even if you are half way through your packet and you start your period. if you are still unsure then you should speak to your doctor.

While on the pill you do not have a true period, you have withdrawal bleeding. One of the actions of the pill is that the lining of the uterus does not become as thick as if you were not taking the pill. Therefore you do not have as much to lose so your withdrawal bleed may only be spotting.

Everyone is different and with different pills you will have different results. Some people have no period while on BCP. The average is 3 to 4 days after your last pill.

You are not likely to get pregnant while you're on the birth control pill.

User Avatar

The pill does not stop you from having your period. Having lighter periods or skipping some are normal. But you should still have your period otherwise you may be pregnant.

User Avatar

Really light or no period because you are not ovulating

Periods can become lighter while on the pill. I wouldn't consider this a sign of pregnancy.

User Avatar

Usually, your period while come during the placebo week of your pills. If you have not started your period even after the placebo week, you should take a pregnancy test.

User Avatar

Yes, it is normal to have brown spotting while on the pill, particularly if you have recently started taking it or have changed brands. Brown spotting while on the pill can occur in place of a regular period.

User Avatar

You should test if you miss your normal period or 14 to 16 days after having sex.

Well I'm on the pill and I start my period pills (white pills) on the Saturday and sometimes I won't get it till Wednesday. On average it's usually Tuesday before I get it. But everyone may be different

Yes it can. Though most people just get lighter periods. Some might have their period every other month. It is normal while on the pill.
