What exactly are you worried about? That your period is light and you may be pregnant? If that’s what you’re concerned about, I would take a test.

It will probably take your body several cycles to get used to your new BCP. I know when I switched pills, my period was really light, and it freaked me out. Wasn’t pregnant though. New pills can cause all sorts of side effects. I’d give this one at least three months and see if some of your weird symptoms and pains subside.

Have you considered setting an alarm on your phone to remind you to take your pills? Missing three pills in one pack isn’t a good thing, especially when your body is acclimating to a new pill.

Ok well first of all, taking xanax will not affect your birth control or your periods (ok, maybe if you were addicted to it the stress could affect it, but not taking it a few times a month). It definitely takes your body a while to adjust to BC pill, and sometimes people don’t get a period on it (I don’t!). If you take the pill correctly, you won’t be pregnant. Sounds like you should bring these things up with your psychologist and try to stay calm! I’m a worrier too, so I know it’s hard! You’re fine 🙂
