I'm nineteen years old and I want to stop my period permanently, without medication. How do I go about that? Are there any surgical procedures?

No: A normal teen girl is supposed to have menstrual periods, so doctors wouldn't permanent stop a normal bodily function. An primary care doctor or an Ob-Gyn doctor can make periods lighter or happen only a few times a year, by using small amounts of medication. Having menstrual periods means a girl's body is doing a normal thing. ...Read more

Not likely with OCP: Birth control, or "oral contraceptives" in the medical community, are not commonly associated with permanent cessation of your menses (OCP effect is temporary during consistent use), nor are these medications associated with voice changes when used as prescribed. Under different conditions, different hormones (not OCP) can be prescribed to promote vocal changes or other hormonal influences. ...Read more

How to stop your period for a few hours?

Tampon?: I don't think you can "stop" your period for just a few hours and then start it up again. All you can do is use tampon to stop/absorb flow for short period of time then switch back to sanitary napkin or pad. You can manipulate timing of your periods by adjusting how you take hormonal contraception. Talk this over w/your doc. Helps if you explain why you want to do this so s/he can better help you. ...Read more

What are some ways to stop your period early?

What are some ways to stop your period early?

Usually with hormone: The most effective way to try and stop a period early is to take hormones, either starting birth control pills or taking Progesterone pills.
