Skipping your period with Birth Control pills

Patient : I am currently on birth control & I decided this month I did not want to have my period & that I would skip my sugar pills in order to not get my period. Just yesterday I took the first pill from my new pack for the month. Last night I was thinking about it & how I did not want to skip the sugar pills anymore because I was worried it would cause problems later with having children. I now want to switch back to the sugar pills for the week in order to get my period but don't know if I can now that I have already started the new pack yesterday, is this allowed? Help please
