Hi Tutu,

Not all women have a 28 day cycle so taking a hormone pill (red pill) for you may be normal. You should consult your doctor and ask him/her about it.

Injection types of birth control can stop a woman's period that doesn't mean you cannot get pregnant as you are still ovulating. Some women's period returns within a few months and other women may not see a period for up to a year after using injection style birth control.

Best of Luck,

I am currently on Depoprovera
