In brief: Skip inactive pills

To skip period , don’t take last 4 inactive pills in pack .
Go straight to first active pill of next pack . However expect a heavier period the following month .

In brief: Can do

You can do this by not taking the inactive(placebo)tablets and start immediately with the active tablets in the next pack.
Should be safe if for 1 month only.Not recommended to do this over longer time frames
