Anyone a pro at birth control ?

I am going on a trip in March and realized a few weeks ago that I'll be on my period the entire vaction (and it's a beach vacation!). I had 2 leftover packs from before I got pregnant of loestrin 1.5.

I started a pack on the first day of my February period (instead of waiting until the first Sunday). My question is, if I stop taking the active pills a few days before they end, will my period start early? If it does start early do I have to bother taking the next month of pills? (My hope is to get my period a week earlier than expected.)

I had my tubes tied in September (during my c-section) so I'm not worried about ovulation or pregnancy.

Thanks for any advice!!

yes, if you stop your pills a week early, you will get your period early. I've done this many times to not have a period during a vacation and for my honeymoon.
