So I've been on the pill for about 4 years now to help with irregularity and I've had no problems. I just found out I'm going to Florida for a week this summer but I've done the math over and over and I'll end up having my period that week. I really would rather not so I've been thinking about starting the sugar pills a week earlier than I should before my next period in hopes of getting my period a week earlier. Is this safe or a bad idea?

Just skip the placebo pills and start your next pack, you will completely skip your period..this is safe, my doc told me I could do this for my vacation too..
