Yes: It is for you. The hormones in the BCPs override the effects of your own body's produced hormones and so keep you from getting pregnant. They may change your "timing" slightly but as long as you take them scrupulously without fail then you will avoid pregnancy with over 99% success rate.

Is it normal if i get my period after every 21 days and it lasts heavily till 4 days, flow is heavy after that three days red spots? Shud i. Worry?

Yes: A heavy flow would be changing a pad or tampon in 1-2 hours or less for 24 hrs or more? I see that you listed that you are underweight.

I don't think you should worry unless your doc has told you, you are anemic. 4 days of heavy and 3 days of spot is completely normal. ...Read more
