If you’re on any form of hormonal birth control, then this is a normal side effect. I have a Mirena IUD which has a low dose of hormones and I’ve not had a full-on period in about 2 years, and I have very light spotting about once every 4-5 months. If your doctor is not concerned, then you should not be either.  In fact, a lot of women take BC just to skip their periods, and you’ll find tons of threads on this forum about changing when you take your placebo pills so as to manipulate your period and not have a period or spotting for your actual wedding or honeymoon.

I got ONE shot of Depoprovera and didn’t get a period for a year. I’d actually prefer to be in your shoes right now, as I’m on seasonique now and after 2 months of no period, I have been on my period for almost a full month. Wanna trade?

(What you are describing is a really normal side effect, btw)
