During my week of inactive birth control pills, is it ok to start taking active pills again before the full seven inactive days are over? I want to cut my period short because of a vacation. I typically start my new week on Sundays. On the off week this usually means I bleed by Tuesday... This week it didn't hit until Thursday which inconveniences my vacation plans this weekend. I'm wondering if I start taking the active pills now, will it cut my period short?
