Is Stopping My Period Safe?
Yes and no. While many doctors agree that skipping periods with birth control pills is fine, they also point out that stopping your menstrual cycle completely may mask other health problems. Uterine cancer, for example, may show itself through changes in menstrual bleeding. Researchers are also investigating the affect of the menstrual cycle on things like bone density. On a positive note, getting rid of your period decreases other symptoms like cramps, anemia, and migraines. Talk to your doctor to find out if stopping your period is right for you.

Try becoming a gymnast. Start practicing your flips and round-offs because woman gymnasts commonly don't get their period because they have such a low percentage of body fat. A woman's body needs a certain amount of fat for it to think it's ready to bear children—thus you get your period.
Ease your pain with yoga. Okay, so yoga won't stop your period. But it's a natural way to alleviate menstrual cramps and other symptoms. Also, it is a great way to get exercise and calm the mind before little red riding hood brings the big bad wolf to see you.
