My last period was neglible, which is remarkable for me. I read that some of the side effects of the drugs I'm on can cause missed or lighter flows. I noticed I still got bad cramps and back pain. I'm on the pill so my period is lighter than it would be otherwise, but since i started all these Crohn's drugs it's been really light.
