    Hello,
    So basically I don't want to have periods any more because I they make me feel like I'm about to faint and stopped me from performing well in an exam recently (any boys reading this or girls who have light periods and think I am making excuses please kindly **** off).
    The problem is that I don't want to go on the pill because it has caused weight gain for almost everyone I know. This is concerning to me because I have had problems with anorexia and I know that if I went on the pill it would start again. I was thinking about the nothisterone pill for taking during exams etc. Does anyone have any experience with this/other tips?

    Norethisterone is like a short term thing so you cant use it too often but if it's just for exams it could be okay. Ita best you speak to your doctor to figure out your best option.

    Surgery is always an option, albeit a drastic one- however, it's not the best idea if there's a slight chance of you wanting children in the future, and it could cause hormonal imbalance issues.

    Then there's hormonal treatment like HRT, but that's difficult to access unless you have an excellent case or are transgender.

    There are foods which can minimise or temporarily halt periods.

    I don't know of any - I suspect they've heard some dodgy old wives tales.
