Avoiding periods on mini-pill (Cerazette) using Meprate.


Q: Hi , I am a 26 yrs old woman. I recently started taking Cerazette (8th march i.e. the day i was expecting my regular period which did not occur since sometimes my periods do get delayed by a few days). I wanted to be able to skip my periods this month (one week , 20th march till 27 the march ) so my doctor advised me to take two pills per day of Meprate starting 15th March. I was just going to start taking Meprate but very light bleeding happened this morning. I still went ahead to take Meprate though, twice a day. I'm afraid of having breakthrough bleeding or constant bleeding which is a side effect of taking Ceraztte sometimes. I am not sure if it is just my regular 5 day period till March 20th or if it will get extended. Please advise how to stop my menses if it extends beyond 20th march! Also would Meprate help me stop them right away even if I started it just when my menses started? I do not want any bleeding for a week starting 20th as I have some important event. I read about Primolut-N as well, would it be better to take Primolut-N ?
