I think any time you add hormones to your body you are bound to find side affects. This is a little out of the norm, but I can see a doctor telling you it’s fine if you’ve never used hormonal birth control before. A lot of women go on hormonal birth control to reduce the side effects of PMS (ie: heavy bleeding, cramping, etc.). What is curious about this though is that it usually takes around 1-3 months before your body has built up enough hormones to make a change in the side effects of your menstral cycle after taking hormonal birth control.

Have you spoken to a doctor about this? I don’t think it’s anything to be too concerned about, but it never hurts to speak to a professional. Your doctor would know best.

Other things to keep in mind are the fact that your menstration can tend to weaken the more you exercise. This happens a lot in female runners to the point that some even stop producing a period for months or years. Diet can also be a contributing factor, as well as age, medications you are taking, iron levels, etc.

If you continue to notice a change I would bring it up with your doctor. At the very least mention it at your next pap test.

@StuporDuck: 20 lbs is a lot of weight to loose! I’m betting that is exactly the reason. Good for you 🙂 Definitely bring it up next time, but as long as nothing else is unusual I would say it all sounds pretty normal. Usually it’s more cramping and a heavier period to be worried about, but you are the opposite. Depending on how fast you lost the weight it totally makes sense. You might also be drinking more water too? A hydrated body cramps less anywhere, so that could be a contributing factor.
