Hi, A lot of women who are taking BC pills notice that their period becomes lighter and less painful for them. This is one of the benefits of BC pills. But if you have been on BC for quite some time and your period is unusually light for you, then you need to rule out pregnancy. If you're not pregnant then there is nothing to worry about but it is always best to rule out pregnancy just to be on the safe side. Spotting is spots of blood in your underwear and is not a light period hun. A light period is a abnormally light bleeding during your period. It may be so light that it only lasts a few hours but you do need to wear a pad or it may last a few days but you only need to wear one pad a day. Heavy bleeding is not a light period. Take care.

Spotting can be normal, but if it continues or is quite heavy I would definitely contact your doctor because it could be something as simple as you being on a birth control that is not right for your body. Most often doctors recommend giving your birth control at least a month trial before deciding if you like it or not, so keep that in mind.
