    Hi,
    This summer there's a (fairly long) period of time in which I ideally don't want to be on my period. My boyfriend's going away and then I'm on two holidays (a week apart), then he gets back the day after I get back. Ideally I'd like to be off my period a couple weeks before he goes away, during my holidays and when he gets back until the end of summer. This would mean taking three pill packs back to back which I'm considering doing, but have heard about spotting etc. so I'm not sure. My question is, since I don't mind being on my period for one of the holidays, would it be better (and safe overall) to take two pill packs back to back, have my pill free week while I'm on holiday, then take two more pill packs back to back?
    TL;DR - Can I take two pill packs back to back, have my week break and then take two more back to back?
    Thanks

    Two packs back to back is fine, if you try it with a third chances are you'll start bleeding during your third pack.
