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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

An ablation is relatively low risk but does not provide birth control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

And taking hormones doesn't always work. The period is the lining of the uterus shedding, so if there is still more lining to shed even taking hormones may not get it to stop. ...Read more
