Want short periods: There are ways to limit days of bleeding when menstruating. All involve some sort of hormone manipulations, such that occasional side effects might not be worth it. Of benefit, less bleeding decreases the chances of anemia. Birth control pills with fewer placebo days are now commonly prescribed and placebos are often skipped to avoid menses. Progestin iuds and depoprovera injections do likewise.

Possibly: If you execise and lose alot of fat, you may not have a perion. Your menstral cycle is actually pretty delecate. World class atheletes may not have a period. Stress can supress your cycle and some women do not mensturate in the summer months.
