Yes, according to the Mayo Clinic and other reliable medical sites, the Birth Control pill can stop or reduce menstruation; that is, some types of pills stop it entirely, while others simply reduce the number of days you menstruate. But as your body adapts to this medication, you may still experience some spotting in the first few months. I enclose a link to the Mayo Clinic's explanation of the effect the birth control pill has on the menstrual cycle.

Taking a birth control pill will not stop you from getting your period. It might make your periods shorter and lighter.
