This happened when I was on ‘normal’ birth control, always spotting after my peirod was over. So the doctor just told me to take them non-stop with my breaks for 4 months, then have my period. 

When I do the break, I get four days of bleeding, relax for 3 days and then onto a new pack.

@SimpleGifts:  I take the lo loestrin BCP too. I havent had my period in 4 months or longer. I get random spotting, but nothing else. My dr said not to worry and the pill can do this. Im afraid to change bc other pills ive had my period for 3 weeks out of the month. No real advice, but funny I have the same thing going on!

@SimpleGifts:  I tried Loestrin FE.  Both my sister and I do not do well on oral contraceptives.  I had HORRIBLE cramps and super heavy never-ending flow. It’s not good for me.  I think maybe you should consider going off of it and switching to condoms if you can’t find another birth control.

Generally, you don’t get a real period when taking BCP.  It’s why they work!
