I would not be concerned about a lighter than normal period, unless you had unprotected sex since your last period. If so, you may want to check a home pregnancy test. ...Read more

Period Prob Coming: Assuming you are taking the BCP properly, it is likely you are about to have your period.Depending on the BCP some women will notice lighter periods the longer they take them, that is normal. Of course if you missed pills, took certain abx and have been sexually active the first thing you should do is a preg test. If sex active and no period within next wk check preg test.
