When on microgestin is it normal to have all your pms symptoms but have a very lightnext to no period at all during your week of placebo pills?

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.
