I started the pill on the Sunday during my last period solely to skip my upcoming period because I will be on vacation. I noticed that because I started the pill on the Sunday during my period (which started the day before on Saturday) I will be getting my period a week earlier then normal. Because of this, I will not be on my period during the trip. Does period start right away when I start the green inactive pills? Can I start the green inactive pills a day or two earlier to trigger my period to come earlier? Will my period be longer than usual? I start the green inactive pills on Sunday and my trip starts Thursday night so I would hope my period is over or nearly over by then. If need be, I will begin the second packet of pills right away and skip the green inactive ones but sort of prefer getting my period as normal because I don't think I will continue to stay on the pill because I am not comfortable with the brown spotting and I constantly feel like I am about to begin my period, also I'm quiet nauseous even though I'm taking it at night with food (I've felt a bit dizzy the last few days as well). Any advice would be great, thanks!
