    Hello all!
    Just wondered if anyone could help me with this quite urgently if possible?
    I'm on the microgynon 21 day contraceptive pill and have taken two packs in a row as I was on holiday when I was due on my period. I finished the second pack on Saturday and started my 7 day pill free week. I'm due on my period tomorrow but have decided I don't want to be on my period for Friday for personal reasons! Is it safe (will I be protected) if I start taking my next pack tonight or tomorrow so I shorten my period??
    Please help!
    Thank you!
