In brief: BIRTH CONTROL

Just like any bcp, it acts the same, menstruation comes after finishing the pills.
The only difference is that it is started on a sunday after the start of the period.

In brief: No

The oral contraceptive pill actually decreases the growth of the lining of the uterus(endometrium) making for lighter and shorter periods from hormonal withdrawal bleeding.
