Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

16 Scopus citations


Medically induced amenorrhea has been used successfully in women who have medical conditions that worsen during menstruation. Menstrual suppression through the use of continuous oral contraceptives has been proven to be safe, effective, and extremely acceptable to women. Women without medical indications for menstrual suppression may find medically induced amenorrhea to be a significant improvement in their quality of life. Greater satisfaction with use of oral contraception may encourage compliance and increase the prevalence of pill-related health benefits.
