    I don't know how it will affect women in later years. I would guess that by having less periods, women might lower their breast cancer risk in some cases. For younger girls who enter puberty earlier than is common (<11 or 12,) I would think it also offers advantages.

      After all, girls/women are really not supposed to cycle all the time. Stopping it by fooling the body into thinking it's pregnant is likely a healthy thing to do, without the perils and responsibilities of pregnancy and birthing.
