What can you do to make your period lighter?

It would not be the amoxicillin that is causing the lighter period, so much as the stress the sickness is putting on your body.

Hormonal birth control methods like the pill, patch, shot, ring, and the Mirena IUD will make a period shorter and lighter for many women, as do some non steroidal anti inflammatory medications. There are also procedures like endometrial ablation available for some women. Talk with your health care provider about options available in your area and for your unique situation.
