Periods can be a pain. Given the choice, how often would you want your period?

  • Never
  • Every 6 months
  • Every 3 months
  • Every month

What do we mean by fewer periods? How?

Exactly that - medically speaking, with some contraceptive pills you don’t need to have a period every month..

Is it safe to have fewer periods?

Yes, if you’re taking a hormonal contraceptive. It doesn’t affect fertility and certainly doesn’t mean they are ‘stored up’.

Speak to your doctor for information about having more control over your periods.
