Hello from JustAnswer.
Yes, one of the options that can be done to try to stop breakthrough bleeding would be to double up on the dose of the oral contraceptive for a short time, such as for a week. It is actually an increase in the estrogen component that is important in stopping the bleeding, but with the pills that you have, the only way to achieve that is to double up on the pills
From a medical perspective, there is no need to treat the breakthrough bleeding, but it can be done for control of the bleeding for the trip to the beach.
It is worth noting that breakthrough bleeding during the first three months on an oral contraceptive is common and does not indicate that this will be an ongoing problem. However, if breakthrough bleeding is a recurrent problem past the first three months, it would be better to consider changing to a different oral contraceptive with a stronger estrogen component.
