Hi! I just want to say this site is AMAZING, with lots of amazing women who are so helpful.

ANYWAY, I've ruled out pregnancy because I'm on the pill and have taken SIX, yes SIX tests and all were negative.

I had a very light period this month. Heavy one one, lighter on 2, and barely bleeding on 3 and 4. I've been on the pill for 6 years and I've been noticing every once in a while my body will do this. Is it something to be concerned with?

Also, I skipped my withdrawal bleed the month before this one for a special occasion, could that have affected it at all?

It doesn't sound like it's anything to be worried about. Sometimes women get shorter lighter periods, it just is the natural way of things. Also, skipping your withdrawal bleed last month can definitely affect your withdrawal bleed this month.

If you are at all concerned you really should talk to your doctor, they will be able to give you any and all information you need. And they may give you piece of mind since it sounds like you are very worried judging by your previous posts.

Hope this helps! :-)

There is an upside to everything, sometimes you just have to turn it upside down to find it.
