Thinking about getting an IUD and I have some friends who have had them for years who said their periods stopped at some point and haven't come back. They are pretty happy with that and honestly I would be too except for the fact that it doesn't seem "natural" for me for a woman not to have her period.
Regardless of how I feel, though, I wonder what the science says? I just keep thinking that a period is like the body's way of cleansing itself but I don't actually understand the biological mechanism behind that. Is there any harm in stopping that process?
