I've heard that sometimes a girl can mistake her period, with actually bleeding that may happen when she gets pregnant..
How would you know if its really your period or what then?
Because i was waiting for my time of the month to come last week and its pretty exact since im on the pill. It came as expected (and i was relieved), but ended earlier then usual (it usually ends by saturday arvo - with a little spotting afterwards that night and the next day, but it finished friday afternoon, and basically had no spotting since then which is odd for me).
So should i be worried that this is not my period?

It sounds very much like a period to me.

However, if you haven't been taking your pills properly or have other reason to believe you have a pregnancy risk it may be worth it to take a pregnancy test.

In the future backing up your pills with condoms will reduce your risk of pregnancy even further and help protect you and your partner from STD/STIs.
