In brief: Depends

Normal cycles represent that your hormones and organs are functioning properly.
Any deviation from normal cycles can be associated with a number of medical conditions which need to be evaluated by a doctor. However, patient's on birth control do not "need" to have a period. Birth control pills were invented to closely represent the normal cycle to gain religious organization approval.

In brief: ?

Why would you want otherwise? At 45 it is likely that you will soon be having no more and they may already be irregular.
