Wondering if there's a safe way to postpone my period? I'm scheduled to stop taking Ocella on Saturday 8/24, but will be camping all next week (8/24 - 9/1) and that would really not be ideal. Ugh. It would be awesome if I could postpone it until the following week or something? Maybe I could just get my next round of pills and take the first week, then have my off week?

Oops, just found the answer to this in another post - great. See below if you have the same question... Thanks anyway!
"Yes it is fine to skip a period every now and then. All you need to do is skip the white placebo tablets altogether and go straight onto the active tablets in your new packet. You will not get your period for that cycle."
