This is my first month on the pills and I don't know how that works. I'm going on holidays the exact day I should start a new pack, so I was considering not taking the inactives to avoid having my period. But if once I start taking the new pack my period will end then I don't need to do this. My pack comes with 7 inactive pills but I would normally get my period a bit further in time
Ok to skip a period you do what you thought. Don't take the inactive pills and start a new pack right away. You won't get a period until you hit the placebos in the second pack. You don't need to have a period every month when you are on the pill. This will change your start date but that won't matter.
