My last period was on time down to the hour but was very light, only lasting one day. I'm still on Levlen 28 and have been for about a year. My periods normally are light to medium bleeding, lasting 3 days. This last one is worrying me.
I've had to urinate very often and have had a headache for the past 2 weeks. I don't think I'm pregnant, but according to my grandma, I wouldn't notice anything right now.
Could my extremely light period have been implantation bleeding? My now ex-boyfriend who just broke up with me yesterday after 3 years has been my only partner. I'll admit, we did have sex unprotected except for my birth control. Could I be pregnant? I'm thinking no, but just some info. to calm me down.
The last thing I need is to be pregnant and my boyfriend having just broken up with me after 3 years of dating.

If you're using the pill, you're not having unprotected sex. Taken consistently and directed, the pill is pretty darn good protection against pregnancy.
It's also entirely normal for our periods to vary a bit from month to month, and having a lighter period every once in a while is nothing to worry about.
That said, if you're spending serious time wondering about pregnancy, can't hurt to invest in a precnancy test. You're right: that break-up is enough to deal with, you don't need to have a pregnancy scare on top of it.
