Hello,

I've been taking the pill for seven months now and this month my bleed was shorter than normal. It usually lasts between 5 and 6 days, but this month it was only 4. I know that there is no reason to be concerned, seeing as I've only had manual sex. I am aware of the fact that the pill makes your periods lighter, I just thought that it would be after a few years of use....Should I be concerned? I took a pregnancy test in case and it was of course negative. I've also been having stomach problems, but don't know fi that's related to the pill. Thanks

There can be a good deal of variability in the amount and duration of your withdrawal bleed at any time. So no, this is nothing to worry about. [Smile]
