Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query.

If you don't want to have your periods for this month you can skip the sugar pills.This means continuing the active pills from a new pack.This way you won't have a period and don't need to take Primolut.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you need further help.

Kind regards,

Hello.

Yes,you can start the new packet of contraception pill and you can take Primolut if you won't to be completely sure .Even if you switch the contraceptive pills ,the effectiveness won't change but you can use the Primolut just to be safe.
It won't cause any problem at all.

Take care.
