Wants to skip periods. Prescribed noristherone, on levara birth control. Recommended dosage?

Hi I am on levara birth control and have been for almost a month now, I am goin on vacation at the end of the month and I have NORISTHERONE to take so I can skip my period while away. What is the reccommended dosage and when should I start taking it? Or should I just stick with my birth control pills skip the sugar pills and move right to the next pack?

Thanks for query,
As you are on birth control pills taking norethirone will disturb your hormonal level.
It is a better option to stick to your pills by skiping sugar pills.
On last day of your vacation you stop the pill. you will get withdrawal bleed within 5-6 days period.Then don't take remaining pills but start a new pack.
