Can you tell me how I could make my periods lighter or shorter?

In brief: Hormonally

Barring that you are a non smoker and have no medical problems that would preclude you from taking hormones, you may want to consider a contraceptive pill; progesterone containing IUD(Mirena,Skyla);Nexplanon.
Some people even like taking progesterone at time of menses to shorten it. You should open a dialog with your Physician to discuss this as it is a fairly common question....Good Luck :)
