What is useless, obnoxious and forces me to stock up on tampons?

Every month for about a week, my quality of life depreciates. My breasts hurt. My normally-clear skin breaks out. My bowel function goes haywire. Sometimes my back and thighs hurt. Sometimes I get cranky. I have to deal with the gross reality that blood is pouring out of my body. Um... No thank you. I'd like to stop this, please.

I generally enjoy being a lady, but I don't want my period anymore. It sucks and I fucking hate it. I've had my period since I was 12. I'm 30. That's been long enough. I'm ready to end my period. Questions: Can I stop it? How would I do that? Is it safe? Are there side effects? Are there health risks not related to my ability to have kids? What do I need to know and how can I do this?
And to answer the responses I know I will get: I don't want kids. I have absolutely no desire. And for all the people who are going to say "But you might change your mind one day" -- first of all, no. Second of all, I'm gay so if I do change my mind, my wife can be the one who gets pregnant or we'll adopt. I will absolutely never, ever allow myself to be pregnant, ever. I don't care if stopping my periods would make it impossible for me to have kids. That is a non-factor here and I really don't want to hear about it.
Thank you in advance!
