BC pills stop you from ovulating. There’s no medical need to have a period on BC.

I’m 27, been on birth control since 18, and I haven’t had my period in about 1.5 years, I’m not worried, neither is my OB/GYN (I talked to her several months ago about that I would be TTC within the next year). The type of birth control I’m on (Loestrin 24) commonly causes lighter or non-existant periods.

Don’t start worrying. Just ask your OB/GYN when you go in for your appointment.

“I’m already 28”

??

That’s still young. You don’t need to start worrying for at least 7 more years. And I third what Abbyful said. No need to get worked up before you’ve spoken with an actual doctor!

Like PP said, it’s normal to have very light or even non-existent periods on BC. I have one about every other month on and off the pill. I think that you should wait and talk to your OB before worrying; the nurse doesn’t necessarily know anything. Your doctor will tell you when it’s best to come off the BC before TTC and how long it generally takes people to re-regulate after being on BC for a while.

I had to come off BC for several months to get certain tests done and mine never really regulated. THAT is when I worried – and for good reason. But it’s totally normal to not be regular while you’re on the pill or just after you come off of it, I know it’s supposed to take several months for that to happen.

And 28 is not old, you’re fine. 🙂

Mine are super light on birth control. Its probably more the equivalent of “spotting.” I wouldn’t worry.

I second what everyone else said. I remember a doctor telling me that if I went 3 months without a period, I would need to come in and have them induce one (I was not on BC at the time and had gone nearly 3 months without a period). So, when I went for 3 months without a period on BC, I freaked out and called a doctor, and she assured me that was fine.

I agree with PP, I’ve been on BC for about 7 years and my period just gets less and less every year. It barely lasts a day, so what you’re describing doesn’t seem that odd to me.

I was on Depo for about 6years without a break. I didn’t have a period that entire time. Ages 21-27.  I just found out a few weeks ago that I am pregnant and I am 31.

don’t worry too much 🙂

The instructions on my BC say that skipping one period is normal but if you skip two that you should stop taking BC straight away and see your doctor because you might be pregnant.

Perhaps she was more worried about that fact than anything else.

I’m sure that everything is fine. I’m excited for you about trying to conceive!

@YvonneBelinda21:

Though I think her comment was offensive, I think your response was much worse

Please do not come on here and start telling people to “watch their mouth” and “who do you think you are”

It’s fine to be offended by the comment but please refrain from being so nasty.

@spraguebride: I have to agree with you. I think Amelia’s post could have been worded better, but I found Yvonne’s response much more offensive in the long run.

@floridabride12:

Pretty sure she is just a “fake” too. She joined 4 hours ago and all she did was post this mean comment and than a rude comment on another thread

I have never understood these people who love to make fake accounts and say mean things.

Thankfully WB is good about threadjackers and I am sure they will take care of it 🙂
