Is birth control going to make my period more regular?

Possibly. It depends on the type of birth control you are using. If you are using a combined hormone birth control, your period should be lighter, less painful, and more regular. If you are using a progestin-only pill, your period may be regular, irregular, or even disappear. It’s especially important that with progestin-only pills you do not skip any pills to adjust when you have a period.
