Best Answer

Hormonal Birth Control such as the combination pill works to stop the menstrual cycle so that a person doesn't ovulate, as you don't ovulate you also don't menstruate. Bleeding experienced on hormonal birth control like the combination pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. This withdrawal bleed has some of the benefits of menstruation and a lot of people prefer to see a bleed as it reassures them they're not pregnant.
