Birth control pills: Hormonal contraception is a great way to control your period. You can skip the placebo pills and restart the next pack. Nuvaring can be exchanged without taking a break. Same with the patch. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can stop some people's periods. Depoprovera shot can too.

Normal period <=7d: Normal periods should last 7 days or less. If you are bleeding longer than this, there are many possible causes, but this should be investigated. Hormonal treatments (such as combined birth control pills or synthetic progesterone) can stop a prolonged period, but the cause should first be determined.

If: on birth control, you could skip the placebo pills and start the next pack. But if not on birth control, no other way. If you are pregnant, that would keep you from a period, but not a recommended way to avoid your menses.
