If you had a period on the red pills, you are not pregnant. Periods do tend to be lighter on the Pill.
Even if you were pregnant, the Pill would not affect the fetus.
Best wishes

This is normal if you stopped the pill and restarted again. Give yourself 2 - 3 months to see if your period comes back as before when going into the red pills. No need to be concerned.
If you were pregnant you will not get a period at all.
If you are still concerned, do a HPT (home preggie test) to put your mind at ease.
Good luck

Hi Lolly ...

I can only speak from experience. I have been using the pill and always use to go my period maybe in my 4th or 5th pill (red). And I was using it for quite a long time and the same thing happened every month. Whether its unusual I can't say. Like I said,I'm only speaking out of experience. Best way is to to a pregnancy test, just to set your mind at ease.

Good Luck and whatever it turns out to be, I wish you all the best.
