Ask A Doctor - Is this a normal period? Birth control question. - DesiMD Healthcare Services


I just started my 2nd pack of Lomedia 24 FE birth control 2 days ago. Before that I had a 2 1/2 day long period (first period being on birth control). It was brown and very, very light pink. I recently became sexually active, but still use backup contraception as well as the "pull out" method. I just want to make sure this is a normal side effect of taking birth control (a significantly lighter period) because it looks like heavy spotting almost and want to make sure I am safe and actually had a period. - Asked by J K on 25-Nov-2014 20:05:06
