While many women want to stop menstruation for various reasons ranging from extreme discomfort during the menstrual cycle, lack of desire for children to simply a feeling of liberation. Women who have weight problems or have an extremely active lifestyle, like athletes, often do not have a regular menstrual cycle.

The people who practice this claim that circling each breast 200 times non-stop daily in this manner eventually stops menstruation. Once you have skipped a menstrual cycle you can reduce the circling to 100 times a day.
This, however, is not normal and it is not recommended to interfere with the natural cycle of the body. Instead of trying to alter the natural cycle of your body, you should focus on treating the menstrual problem you have. You can combat your menstrual problems using simple home remedies. Parsley juice is excellent for all kinds of menstrual problems and you can drink 75 ml of this juice daily. Similarly beet juice also helps to combat all menstrual problems and can be consumed daily. An infusion of ginger taken thrice a day after each meal is beneficial for all menstrual problems. Above all, avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol, consume the requisite amount of liquids and stick to a healthy lifestyle to have a regular and relatively stress free menstrual cycle.
