I think the only way is to go on the combined pill and take 2 packs consecutively so you do not have a bleed.

yes,, you go to the gps and ask for norethisterone.....should hold it off or run the packs of pill together!

make sure you leave enough time before you go though- you usually start the pill (IIRC)on day1 of your cycle, i.e. the first day of your period, so you need to start the tablets a month BEFORE you are due to go

My poor dd (13) has had her period the last 2 times we've been away, and each time was only for a week .

Yes - if you're on a combined pill just run the two packs together without a break. It's fine to do that.
