Can you get your period on the pill?
Whether you can get a period on the pill depends on which pill you are taking. The vast majority of contraceptive pills suppress ovulation, which means that you won’t experience a real period.
However, it is normal to experience period-type bleeding when you are taking a combined contraceptive pill which contains the two hormones estrogen and progesterone. These pills are usually taken for three weeks, with a one week pill break during which you are likely to notice bleeding. This is perfectly ordinary and it doesn’t mean that the pill hasn’t worked.
