You are taking a combined hormone birth control.
Yes! That's one of the great things about combination birth control pills. Your period should be lighter, less painful, and more regular. Combine hormonal contraception (CHC) works by preventing ovulation, thickening cervical mucus and thinning the uterine lining. It may take a few months for you to experience these benefits completely. You should get your period during the week of your placebo pills (the last seven pills in the pack that are a different color.) Often women don't get their period until 3 or 4 days after their last active pill. Even if you are not done with your period you would still start your next active pill on the day it is due (the day after your last placebo pill). This all helps regulate your cycle to be 28 days long, and protect you from pregnancy. Occasionally when women first start birth control they will experience spotting/ irregular bleeding for the first few months during the active pills. Until their body gets used to the hormones. This is not abnormal, just annoying! So, please bear that in mind if you are just starting. But after that your period should be much more regular!
You are taking a progestin-only pill (POP).
In a short answer. No. You may get abnormal bleeding/spotting the first few cycles with a POP. You also may have no period, an irregular period, or a regular period as everyone is different and the POP's don't have the period regulation benefits of a regular combination birth control pill. Most women find that they do not have a period at all after the first 3-6 months of progestin-only pills. However, everyone is different. You can not skip any pills in a POP pack to attempt to get a monthly period and experience the period regulation benefits of a CHC. You also cannot skip any of the pills in a POP pack to “skip a period.” Unfortunately, it just doesn’t work like that.
