Possible cause and action Oral contraceptive pills alter your normal hormone levels and may affect your periods. Some pills intentionally stop periods occurring. If your periods do not return after stopping the pill, carry out a home pregnancy test (opposite). If the result is negative and your periods have not restarted within 3 months, consult your doctor.

Possible cause and action Progestogen intrauterine contraceptive devices can reduce the amount of bleeding during periods or stop periods altogether. Many women consider this an advantage, but if you are worried, consult your doctor. He or she may suggest an alternative method of contraception (see Methods of contraception, p.277).
