In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
).
