Many women feel side effects of birth control pills. Common side effects of oral contraceptives include: intermenstrual spotting, nausea, breast tenderness, headaches,weight gain, mood changes, missed periods, decreased libido, vaginal discharge etc.

To skip period for vacation you need to skip the placebo pills in the last week and start a new pack upfront and skip the placebo pills.

You can discuss with your doctor about other methods of birth control like IUCD as well if you don't wish to continue BC pills.
