I was watching discovery health channel when a commerical came up talking about a way to have fewer periods and they gave a website so I decided to check it out.
According to the site you take a pill that they say is very safe and will not effect you trying to get pregnant after you stop taking the pill and it also helps prevent pregnancy.
I am thinking about getting on it but not 100% sure yet.
If you wanna check it out go to fewerperiods.com[/b]
It's Seasonale, a brand of hormonal birth control. It's really no different than any other form of hormonal birth control, except that you continually take pills for 3 months at a time to try to avoid having a period.
Before you consider taking it, read some user reviews of Seasonale. There have been a lot of women who love it, but there are also a lot of women who hate it because of the nasty side effects.
You can do that with any pill. You just don't stop taking them-- once you finish the three weeks of active pills, you go straight to the next pack. I've done it before. You might get some break through bleeding though.
I was on a bunch of different brands of birth control to try and suppress my period for over three years. Instead of taking the fake sugar pills I would move on to my next pack. I dealt with the pills just fine and I'm generally not one to be able to handle medication well. I had breakthrough bleeding sometimes but it wasn't anything major at all. One of my ovaries wasn't developed properly because I didn't have a period for so long. It just made me break out in acne everywhere. It cost me thousands of dollars to try and fix it. But it didn't impair my ability to get pregnant at all. I wasn't even trying to get pregnant and it happened after being off them for a couple months and having three regular periods.
Everyone is different though. I don't think it's always a good idea to stop your cycle or try to lessen the amount of days unless it's for a medical reason.
