Are there any birth controls that stops your period all together ?

Report as

The birth control shot can make it so that you have a period once every 3-6 months but everyone I know says it screws up their periods and they last a whole month. I don't know if this is true or not but I also heard that the longer time you go without having a period due to birth control can actually harm your chances of getting pregnant in the future when you may want children.

You can take birth control pills and roll over your packs (don't take the placebo pills at the end of each month) and you wont have your period. Every 4 months it is ideal to have your period though; it is better for your body/tolerance of your BC. Not all birth controls can roll over. Talk to your OB/GYN or family prescribing doctor about your options.

I took seasonique (sp?) and just skipped the pills that give u a period. My gyno said it was totally fine. But in the end i didn't feel like it was healthy. I started having stomach issues. Bloating and such... I don't suggest it.

The only one that will completely stop it is a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).

You can do this with NuvaRing. The instructions say to leave the ring in for 3 weeks, then take it out for one week (when you'll get your period) and then insert a new ring. With your doctor's permission, you could leave the ring in for all four weeks and then swap it out for a new one, skipping the one-week gap and your period. Ask your doctor about it.

When I was on the birth control shot I never had a period. My dr said that's what it does to most people.

Because you probably didn't take the blank pills like you were suppose to. There's blanks for every month

I was not on the pill when that happened, it was the shot you get once every 3 months. I always had a normal period when on the pill, the week I was supposed to. I stopped getting the shot after 9 months and went back on the pill.

My doctors have told me if you aren't having a period at LEAST four times a year, that is not healthy. I don't remember why, but I don't question the dr! Or mother nature. I hate periods, but you need to have one from time to time. However, you are not required to have them every month. So no, I don't believe birth control does this. I've take birth control before because I had excessive periods and spotting every month, so I needed that controlled. But I gained so much weight on it!! Like 10 pounds. You're body thinks it's pregnant when you're one it, I was always craving. My cousin actually got morning sickness. So, if you don't need it, I don't recommend it.

personally i am on Loestrin 24FE and i haven't had a period in maybe 3 years. i take them everyday and take the placebo pills, even on the brown pill days.. still nothing. when i talked to my doctor about it she said i was "in that lucky 5% that happens to". she didn't seem concerned at all about it or question anything. it's just how my body reacts to this brand. if my doc isn't concerned, neither am i... cause not having one is awesome!

It wasn't until the last few centuries that women actually started having regular, monthly periods. It's actually more natural for our bodies to experience less frequent or nonexistent periods. The idea of *needing* to have a period to be healthy is all psychological; you're healthier if you're *not* constantly losing blood for a week straight.
