Yes. It depends what pills you re on. Many cause your menus to become lighter. ( some time a 1, 2 or 3 day period)

Doctors have discovered there is no medical need for a period.

Many doctors will now prescribe 3 months worth of pills to be taken straight with a one week break after 3 months (This results in 4 periods a year)

IUD's are another form of Birth Control that can virtually eliminate periods all together. and they are MUCH safer than they were 30 yrs ago.
