I have been on birth control for 4 years or so, and I've been on Seasonique for about 9 months now. I get my period once every 3 months, so I take 12 weeks of active pills and 1 week of "inactive" pills, though they aren't really inactive since my doctor did say they have a low amount of hormones. Also, I never miss a pill.
Here is the problem! I am supposed to get my period the week after next. So I have 2 weeks of pills left in this pack: 1 week of active pills, and then the 1 week of "inactive" pills, in which I will have my fake period. I just now realized I am supposed to see my boyfriend the week of the inactive pills (Week 13), which is totally unfair since I haven't seen him in weeks. I really do not want to be on my period when I finally get to see him.
My question is this: Can I flip-flop the 2 weeks? Meaning can I take my "inactive" pills next week to force my period a week early, then follow it by the 1 week of active pills so that I am not on my period when I see my boyfriend? Then I would of course start a new 3 month pack. Is this safe? Does this do anything to my chances of getting pregnant? I am terrified of getting pregnant so if there is a chance it will get me pregnant, I won't even try it.
