It sounds like that may have BEEN your period. Did it happen during the placebo pills?

I'm also not sure I understand what effects you want the pill to have on your period. What the pill does is create an artificial "withdrawal bleed," usually during the same time as the placebo pills, and it's usually lighter and shorter than a menstrual period. For people who had bad PMS or cramping with periods, it can also often reduce those symptoms.

(Just FYI, when you post, can you not capitalize every word? It makes it really hard to read your posts. Just capitalizing at the start of sentences and with proper nouns not only saves you time w/the shift key, and it's just proper grammar, it's also a lot easier to read. Thanks!)

The birth control pill cannot do that and is highly unlikely TO do that.

Can I ask why that's something you want? There's nothing more healthy about a longer period (or less so) than a shorter one. As well, not everyone's periods ARE seven days, so there's no "supposed to" here. On the pill, you don't have a real period anymore regardless, but for women who do have periods, how long their flow lasts for varies, and while longer than 8-10 days is something to be concerned about, shorter than that usually is not.

Well, if you started using birth control pills, it probably wasn't random. Like I said, birth control pills create a withdrawal bleed that is commonly shorter and lighter than menstrual periods.
