I am on the birth control pill but my period was very light and lasted about 4 days. Can I be pregnant? Or is it common to have a light period

Lighter periods are. It is quite common that "periods will be lighter and shorter"while on oral contraceptive pills which usually reduce your risks of pregnancy (are 92 to 94% effective) but will not eliminate the possibility of a pregnancy. If you need to know, check your pregnancy tests. If you would like to feel safer and use the most effective methods of contraception, ask a knowledgeable and caring Gyn for a LARC.

What was result? You mention taking a pregnancy test but did not mention the result. If the pregnancy test was negative then you are not likely pregnant especially since you are on birth control and had a normal period. Read more...

What to if I am on the birth control pill, missed my period, and have a negative pregnancy test?

Sounds good. While it sounds very reassuring - you should probably retest in a week or so (if you are concerned or missed some pills). Sometimes the progestin hormone in birth control pills will make the lining of the uterus so thin that periods stop or skip. A sonogram and visit to your gyn can help to confirm why you didn't get your period. Read more...

Tests are accurate. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. Read more...
