okay.

do you bleed every time?

are your periods normal?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Everything I have sex whilst being on the birth control pill, yes. But when I'm not and just use condoms I'm fine! My periods are completely normal.
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 9 months ago.

There must be a hormonal change that happens

It could produce some changes in the vaginal tissue

That would be my impression

is this helpful?
