How can I make my period shorter?


Hey ladies, I have a predicament. When I have my period, or even breakthrough bleeding from missing a bc pill, I have a few days of active bleeding, but that old browner blood seems to hang around foreverrrr. It makes my full period last for a whole week! I was wondering if there's anything I can do to get it out of my body sooner so I don't have to wear pads so often and so I can get intimate with my bf again. Thanks!
