I hope u are not planning to use OCs for non-contraceptive benefits only! Anyway since u ask i can let u know a couple of things my gynae told was less blood loss in periods which indeed happened for me. less period pain, but i never had them anyway. protection agaimnst a couple of cancers, dont exactly remember which ones...lessening of premenstrual tension, which dint really hapeen in my case. Hope this helps!

Apart from the benefits mentioned above, your periods would become regular.
