No,Once your period starts, it doesn't stop until all of the uterine lining and the egg is flushed from your body.
You can start it now however and you will be protected right away with the pill. Then if you want to stop a period you just start a new pack instead of taking the break.
It may shorten your period, but then again, it may not. This is the best time to start the Pill though. A Day 1 start, you are protected right away.
I DON'T KNOW IF YASMIN WORKS... But 3 days ago I started my period and and on the day it started I took TWO ibuprofen 800 and a weeks worth of birth control and the next day my period completely end its been two days and still no period... DOn't know how safe it is but I'm still alive with no side effects. And I have been taking a single birth control pill since still no period
