If you are already on the pill, stopping them and starting them on a different day to reschedule your period puts you at risk for pregnancy and/or make you have irregular bleeding for a while. If you are just starting the pill, you can start it on the day you start your period or the Sunday immediately following your period (even if you are still bleeding). Sunday startup is popular because it would ensure that you won't have your period on any weekend.

If you are on birth control and you know when you are getting your period how can you change it so you won't be on your period at a certain time?

if you're on the pill, skip the "inactive" pills and start again on a new pill pack instead. the inactive part is what gives you your period. it's safe and everything. Just continue to take your active pills without a break or taking sugar pills and you will stop your period. It won't hurt you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Can you skip your period while taking the birth control pill and is it safe?

If you didn't get your period while on the sugar pills, it's not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Many women have very light or no periods when they first start taking the pill, it's a side effect. If you are asking if it's safe to intentionally skip a period by skipping the sugar pills and moving on to the next active pill pack, the answer is yes. You can skip your period without any increased risk of pregnancy; however, you may have unscheduled spotting or bleeding.
