birth control
An_257117 posted:
I've been on birth control for about 7 years because I have PCOS. The pill has regulated me when I've been on the right one (due to insurance changes I've had to switch a few times); however, I've been on the same one for about 2 years now. Recently I thought I'd started my period like normal, except it was not normal at all. I had little to no cramping what so ever and flow ranging from light to spotting bleeding which only lasted 3 days when the norm for me is a 6-8 day period with moderate to heavy bleeding and moderate cramping. I've always been pretty regular on birth control (except for when things have been switched around). and I take it about the same time every day.

Having lighter periods or even skipping a period all together is common on birth control.
