I am planning to go to the Dominican Republic this summer and I am scheduled to get my period the day after I get there. I have been on the pill for a little over a month now. Is it possible to take the white pills the week before I leave for my trip and then take the week three pills while I'm on my trip?
No, you dont want to alter weeks! If you dont want your period, dont take the inert placebo pills (the white sugar pills for the fourth week), just skip those pills and go right to your new pack, so go from the last yellow pill at the end of the third week and instead of going to the white pills on the fourth week, go right to the first yellow pill in the next pack, this way you should be able to skip your period this month. You may still spot a bit but this is your best bet. If you skip this months period, you can expect next months to be a bit heavier, of course.
