In brief: Can't say

Heather is a progestin only contraceptive.
The progestins in pills provide the contraception.Estrogen is added for cycle control. Some women have normal periods on progestin only or mini-pills but most notice a change. The periods can be lighter, irregular, or less frequent. It varies from woman to woman and there is no way to predict what to expect in any one woman. Sorry I can't be of more help.
