No periods: Amenorrhea (no menstrual period) is the most common effect. Long-term absence of menstrual period can cause bone loss and may influence the future risk of heart disease.

No periods.: Number one on the list is that without ovulation, spontaneous periods do not occur. Consequences of this can include impaired fertility, and possible development of pre-cancerous changes in the uterine lining (endometrium.).
