Hormonal Birth Control works by overriding your menstrual cycles, suppressing your cycles so that you no longer ovulate - as you no longer ovulate it means that you no longer menstruate. The bleeding women experience on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills, not menstruation. Withdrawal bleeds can be lighter than menstrual bleeds because one way the pill works is to prevent secondary uterus lining build-up (as a back-up to changing cervical mucus and preventing ovulation) so that if there was a fertilised egg it couldn't implant.

Is there any way you can make your period come sooner or make it last for a shorter amount of time?

Hello The only way to make your period arrive earlier than usual for you is by taking birth control pills and by missing some pills or you can miss a period completely by continuing to take birth control pills instead of going onto the sugar pills. But you can only do this when you've been on birth control pills for about two months because the first month will be all over the place. Birth control pills do make your period lighter, less painful and can make your period shorter.
