I just ended my period last Sunday. There were at least two days where I bled "regularly" ( I changed pads a bunch... and totally soaked a pantyliner). The other days I bled dark red, amost brown, and it was pretty regular and kind of alot. I had a alot of brown blod clots. The whole thing lasted about five days. I would consider it a normal period.
There is no way I'm pregnant, right? Why are my breasts/nipples so sore? Possibly from the BC?
I am serious about correctly taking my pills so there is no question there. And, we also use condoms.
I guess since I read a bunch on this site how you can still bleed and be pregnant, it worries me, because my periods have always been pretty heavy. So when I see a lighter period, I get a little cautious. But, I think I need to keep in my mind that I am infact on BC, which will lighten them up, right?

It's common to have lighter/otherwise different bleeds on birth control pills. You cannot be pregnant and have anything close to a normal bleed; only in rare cases is there spotting or light bleeding. Since you've taken your pills correctly and used condoms, there's no cause for concern in the first place.
Birth control pills can cause swelling or enlarging of the breasts. Is it possible that your breast and nipple soreness is caused by an ill-fitted or no-longer-fitting bra?
