Does the mini pill stop periods?

The progestogen only pill (‘mini pill’) may prevent ovulation and therefore prevent you going through your usual menstrual cycle.

After 12 months of use, approximately half of people find that their periods stop altogether or they have infrequent bleeding; for others, their periods may become more irregular, lighter, heavier or more frequent.
