Good morning and happy Friday!
Quick disclaimer: This post will contain period talk and it may be gross.
I am on BC pills, and my period comes like clockwork. Every Wednesday morning on the placebo, my period starts. Wednesday? No period. Thursday? Dark discharge, and not much of it. Hoping I’d wake up and my period would resume back to normal, I’ve got nothing on my overnight pad. I typically stop bleeding on Saturday night. It is now Friday and I haven’t even really bled. Does the very small amount of dark discharge even count as a period?!
Should I take a pregnancy test, or should I be worried? I’ve never had a period like this in the 4 years I’ve been taking the pill.

Take a pregnancy test to be sure I guess, but I’ve had off periods sometimes on birth control. Then everything is back to normal for the next one.

@LittlePumpkin: Has anything else in your life changed? I started taking antidepressants a couple of weeks ago and it definitely affected my period which was the lightest I’ve ever had and consisted of a small amount of brown discharge each day I was supposed to have it. If you are really worried I’d give your doctor’s office or a nurse line a quick call and check with them.

@Eckle: no ma’am! I’m not taking any other meds, I’m active, fit, happy. Nothing else has changed. :/

Periods can change even if you’ve been on BC for a while. I’d give it a day or two, but if you don’t get your period I would take a test and think about seeing your gyno just to rule out anything else.
