On placebo pills, want to skip periods. Is it safe to skip the placebo pills and go to a new pack?

How can I safely skip my period coming up? I started Tri-Sprintnec about 3 weeks ago and start my placebo pills on Monday. I do not want my period to come this month because I am going to see my boyfriend for the first time in 2 months. Is it safe to skip the placebo pills and go to a new pack? I heard that you have to start on week 3 and work backwards because of the changing hormone levels? But then do you have to start a new pack starting from the top? Im confused. I do not know what to do. Please help.

You are absolutely right.
If you want to postpone your periods,skip your placebo pills.
Start a new pack immediately after finishing your active pills of previous pack.
Whenever you are interested in resuming your periods,stop the active pills and start the placebo will get periods after few days.
All the active pills present in the pack are same.
