Regular use of oc pills can cause decreased flow of menses or oligomenorrhea.
That normal.Your flow may last only 2-3 days.As long you get your menses regularly every month,its normal.In case you miss your period,you need to exclude pregnancy first.If your stop taking pills,your periods will become as before.Sometimes,hormone imbalance can also cause less flow. But you need to worry about that unless there are any added symptoms like weight gain,discharge from breasts,facial hair etc.
