The pill: The low dose pill may well be the cause. The balance of progesterone and estrogen stimulates little growth of the uterine lining and therefore little to bleed off with a period. Medically this isn't a problem but if it concerns you it can be addressed by changing pills or adding an additional small dose of estrogen as a pill or patch. Hope this helps
