You don't get periods if you use birth control pills. Hormonal birth control pills work by suppressing the menstrual cycle so that a woman no lover ovulates, as she no longer ovulates it means that she no longer menstruates - the bleeding you get while on the birth control pills is withdrawal bleeding caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when you go from the active to inactive pills. Withdrawl bleeding is meant to mimic menstruation but it is in no way the same thing. It's normal to experience irregular bleeding for the first three months on the pill as your body adjusts from having menstrual cycles to this pattern of withdrawal bleeding - if irregular bleeding continues after 3 months talk to your doctor about a different brand.
