ETA: can i prevent my period from happening?

I'm supposed to spend the night with a guy I've been dating tomorrow night but I'm also supposed to get my period. I'm on birth control and I've only taken one white pill. If I skip the rest will it delay my period? Are there any other ways to delay /prevent it??

Anyone ever hear of the lemon juice and ibuprofen way??

Um if you skip you could get knocked up. Unfortunately I don't know of any ways to delay your period other than certain types of bc or getting pregnant. Lol.

Start the new pack not taking the white pills at all. It's ok to do every once in awhile but not regularly

Are your white pills the placebos? My white pills are the hormone pills.

If you skip the last row of pills, its the same as taking them. If theyre hormone pills...keep taking them.

Maybe this is just the chance to keep you from having sex with this guy? fate and what not.

Here is a little trick. Skip ALL the white pills. Just go take the regular blue or pink or whatever color all the other pills are. If you want to skip your monthly just dont take the white pills and take the normal colors one you always take.

Yes you can skip those pills. You don't have to have a period of you don't want one while on the pill. Same thing as if you took those pills that you only have a period once every three months.

My gyno has told me to keep on truckin. I have not stopped taking a single pill in 13 months. :-)

"There is no medical reason to have a period other than to get pregnant" 

Actually.. 4 different gynos have told me that from 3 different offices.

If you start a new pack and skip the white pills, you might not get it but I'm not sure since you already took one white pill. Since you already took one white pill, there's a chance you might still ovulate.
