Skipping a period on Levlen Ed.Is this safe ?

I am on Levlen Ed and today is the last pill (tomorrow I start the sugar tablets). I have a holiday booked next week and get painful periods, however this is my first period on the pill so I am unsure if it will be painful. However, I don t enjoy the idea of sitting in a car for 5 hours with a heavy period :P So, my question is, is it safe to skip my first period with Levlen Ed (not taking the sugar tablets)? My period was always regular, if that makes any difference
