    Hi all, I'm due to start my next pack of pills (after a 7 day break) on Monday, but this means that the pack will end halfway through my holiday and I will therefore come on my period on the Wednesday/Thursday (last day of holiday) and continue while I am at a festival that weekend, both events being with my boyfriend. The past few months I've been having to take an extra week/two weeks/skip a 7 day break of pill due to other events I would prefer not to be on my period for and I'm wondering if this month I could just take a 14 day break between packs instead, as I feel my body hates me for messing around with how many pills I've been taking lately? I've seen that if I take a 48 hour plus gap after having a 7 day break I won't be protected for another 7 days, this brings me to the 30th May. I'm not seeing my boyfriend again until the 31st May so will I therefore be protected? Or is it just safer to take another pack of pill afterwards? Hopefully this is clear, ask any questions, thanks in advance!

    It would be easier to just double back the packets without a break just to save the what ifs. It's safe to do so, just make sure you have a period at some point (don't do them without a break for like six months for example)
