Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you wish to postpone your periods, you can consider starting with new pill pack by skipping the placebo pills/pill free-period (you might experience breakthrough bleeding while being on the new pill pack). Other option would be to get started on pills for postponement of periods (this will help in preventing breakthrough bleeding/spotting). You can also consider stopping with your pill intake now and allow for withdrawal bleeding to occur early, and get started on new pill pack early. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and clarification. Avoid unprotected intercourse and use back-up protection while having intercourse for additional protection from pregnancy (if skipping pills or taking new pills). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
