Talk to your doctor first, but I believe you can continue taking the active pills, then your period won't start. Once you take the 1 week of inactive pills, your period will start.

Is it safe to continually take your birth control pill?

Only if it is a 28 day pill. If it is a 21 day pill one or 2 months of not taking the week break won't do much harm, but it shouldn't be done on a long term basis. Many women do this when they are going on vacation etc and want to avoid a menstrual period. If you want continuous easy protection you may find the Depo injection easier to cope with, this also has a common side effect of preventing menstruation.

A few things could be going on. If you were sexualy active just after going off the pill, then you could be pregnant and the first period was not a period. If you had contact of any sort or you were taken advantage of after the period, you could be pregnant. The symptoms listed could be the result of going off the pill. Do an EPT and/or see your doctor about a blood screen.
