Is it safe to push back my period 1 week for vacation using 3 month birth control (seasonale) the same way others do with 28 day oral contraceptives?

Use of 3 month BCP: There is no harm in pushing back your period one week when using seasonale the same way that one can skip the last 7 pills and start a second month of the 28 day pill to delay their period.
