Each birth control pill effects one differently. When you first begin taking BCP's you will experience pregnancy symptoms because of the hormones contained in BCP's. BCP's work by tricking your body into thinking its pregnant and also by preventing Ovulation occurring.BCP's also effect our periods differently. Some women will experience a heavier or more clotty period while others will have a less painful or a lighter than normal period.

If your period came early but was light and not clotty can you still be pregnant?

Hello. Yes there is a chance you could be pregnant because your period came earlier than normal for you and was lighter than normal for you. Because of this there is a small chance of pregnancy. See your doctor for a blood test or do a home pregnancy test. The blood test is highly accurate. Please recommend me if I've helped you. :o)

Will you have a normal period the first month you get off birth control?

It's very unlikely that you'd have a normal period the first month off birth control (I'm assuming by 'birth control' what you actually mean is the combination pill - please don't use these terms interchangeably, there are many forms of birth control!). Your first 'period' will be your withdrawal bleed as normal, but after that it may take a few months to get a real period again. It can also take up to 12 months for your cycles to regulate again once you stop using hormonal birth control.
