How to skip a period?

So I know it probably isn't healthy do stop a natural function but my period is supposed to come this month on the 23rd. We are going with boyfriends parents out of town and the last thing I want is to be having to worry about dealing with my uncontrollable bleeding self.

I have heard that if you are on birth control, specifically the pill (which I am), that you can skip a period somehow. Something about not taking the brown pills??
