Hydrating with lots of water, getting good excercise, and eating healthy--especially iron-rich foods like leafy greens (spinach) and red meat--should help you manage the severity of your period, even if they might not make it shorter. You might want to avoid caffeine, excess salt, and alcohol, too, to help stay hydrated. [[User:Cotko|Cotko]]OR[[User:Cotko|Cotko]] You can't, you will need to get hormones from the doctor.

IF you do not get a period, then you cannot become pregnant. Usually, after the ovum and the uterine wall breaks down and you have a period, the cycle begins anew. However, not getting a period could mean that you are not going through the menstrual cycle and are effectively sterile. After menopause, you no longer experience a menstrual cycle and thus, can no longer bear a child (naturally). Not experiencing the menstrual cycle means that you cannot become pregnant.
