Is it possible to get birth control that makes you not have a period completely, i don't want the shot or any implant.

Another idea is the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud as it has some Progesterone in it and sometimes women will have cessation of menses with this iud. Not all women, but some women have that as a side effect. Best of luck. ...Read more
