Birth control pills decrease the chemical called, prostaglandins, which is what causes the muscles of the uterus to contract.

It's for people like me that get insane and severe contractions on their periods, called dysmenorrhea. I also have menorrhagia. It is not the type of contractions that a human being is able to tolerate. It's not just the 'ugh cramps'. Mine we're so severely painful I was vomiting, couldn't sleep, getting hot flashes all the while screaming bloody murder for hours on end. I'm talking literal screaming mind you. They used to hurt so bad I wanted to call the damn ER but couldn't move.

That's how birth control deals with periods. It regulates it for people that get some really fucked up shit for a period.

For my mother it was because her periods were 2 weeks of menstruating when she was younger instead of one week. It makes you anemic if it isn't regulated in that case.

okay thank you for clairifying! sorry if I sounded a bit rude...because I am on birth control too and the only thing that it personally helps me with in regards to period is that I know when it is coming....I thought the poll meant birth control pills deal with the blood of the period...

It's actually very comfortable. Unlike pads where it gets hot and sticky down there lol you gotta sleep in a certain position so you don't leak or getting blood up your ass
