If you are skipping a period, especially for more than 3 months at a time, it’s important to discuss this with your doctor.
If your body routinely skips multiple periods, it can cause overgrowth of the lining of the uterus and could eventually lead to a uterine cancer. But what if you are using birth control to skip periods, is that okay? Yes! Progesterone-based birth control thins the lining of the uterus so there isn’t anything that needs to come out for a period.
These birth control methods can also be protective for people who don’t cycle regularly to prevent overgrowth of the uterine lining.
