Lemon has no effect: It is not uncommon to have irregular bleeding the first several months after you start birth control pills. However, if the bleeding is very heavy or persists for weeks, you should see your health care provider. Lemons provide vitamin c, but have no effect on menstruation or contraceptive effectiveness.
