The menstrual cycle stops in case of pregnancy. But the process resumes after child birth. The only time menstruation does stop is when the woman reaches the age group of 45-55, and goes through menopause. The menstruation cycle can also be stopped temporarily, in case of a trip or a special event.
A woman, who wants to stop her periods temporarily, must consult a gynecologist. The doctor will determine if this is a safe option. There are two ways of stopping the menstrual cycle temporarily. The doctor may either administer a contraceptive pill or can give a birth-control shot.
