how much time can you avoid your period on birth control?

Dr. Peter Baumann
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No limit: Women do not need to have menstrual periods. Once the hormones that prevent a woman from having menstrual periods are stopped, menses will kick in again. It may take awhile, though, e.g., it can take a year after stopping depotprovera for menses to kick in again.
