can't you just carry onto another pill packet? this will stop you having your monthly cycle however regardless of what contraceptive pill you take if you are wanting to delay your period my advise is to carry on taking the next pill packet without having a usual 7 day break, Although don't use this method constantly it will most definately 1. mess up your regular cycle. 2. could cause problems in the long term.

Thanks for query,
As you are on oral contraceptive,after completion of one packet,without break you start new packet of tri-cyclin,for about a week and your period will be delayed for a week.
Mind well your date of your period will be new one.
ok and bye.
