Q&A with Dr. Patrick

Is it safe to use continuous birth control pills and not have a period?

Yes.  Monthly bleeding is not necessary and suppressing your period has no negative impact on your health.  Taking continuous birth control pills (without a “pill free” period) can be advantageous in women with PMS, painful menstrual cramping, migraines, heavy periods, and anemia.
