Is there a way to stop my period?

Using certain hormones like birth control or testosterone can stop your period. Having a hysterectomy and removing internal reproductive organs will also stop a period.

If you want to stop it because it causes you a lot of pain, consult with a medical provider to find out if there are any underlying causes for your pain, or if there are ways to stop the pain from happening. Sometimes chronic illness can cause painful periods or make periods irregular.

If you want to stop it because it causes you dysphoria, you may be interested in exploring hormones or surgery that will stop your period. Consult with a medical provider to access hormones and learn more about surgical options.
