Welcome to ehealthforum.
You can postpone your periods by taking or starting on the next pack of active pills immediately without giving a gap. This works most of the time, but can get misfired and result into breakthrough bleeding or spotting in between. If you wanted to postpone periods, you should have considered visiting your gynecologist atleast 5 days before your actual period dates to get started on the pills for ‘postponement’ of periods, and take them for as long as you do not want your periods while remaining protected against pregnancy.
Take care.
