In brief: Good chance so..

It is a med belong to the progestin class and one of the intended/side effect of use is amenorrhea--lack of period/mentrual flow.
Some women may have some breakthrough bleeding while on this med..Often light flow and 'unpredictable" ask your questions/express your concern when you are prescribed medication. Good luck.
