comment Are Jewish women permitted to use birth control that stops menstruation?
There's no prohibition on continuing to use an OCP continuously; it's often advised for couples who have just married and haven't yet consummated the marriage. But this assumes that it is permissible to use an OCP. Not everyone feels that this is permissible for longer durations, or is l'chachilah the best approach (e.g., R' Henken/Nishmat). You should check with your local rabbi/yoetzet halacha, and an Ob/Gyn before pursuing this course...

comment Can a convert serve as a dayan?
@Menachem While related with respect to restrictions, I think this question is distinct and more practical in nature (e.g., can a ger receive smicha yadin yadin in order to judge on financial matters viz. E''H, Ch''M). Further, YDK's answer makes a distinction based off of who is facing arbitration at the beit din, as does the related question you cite. I'm vaguely aware of certain content restrictions (e.g., ger cannot judge death penalty case) but wonder if others also exist.

comment What are Brochos differences of Sefardim and Ashkenazim?
The same is true for bagels. I'll try to look up sources later but this has to do with what constitutes motzi v. mezonot. In essence, it has to do with what % (any, or >50%) of a food is breadlike.
