Is it normal to not have periods while on birth control?

Great question!

It really depends on the form of birth control.

Sometimes when a person first starts birth control, their periods can change or be irregular while their body gets used to the new hormones.  This will vary for different bodies, but can last for awhile.

Some forms of birth control thin the lining of the uterus/stop the uterine lining from building up. This, in turn, can stop someone’s period completely.  This is medically healthy and okay for this to happen, but only for certain types of birth control methods
