can i stop my birth control for 1 week then restart a new pack, in order to get my period at a different time? I am on Micronor.

With Micronor, you are not supposed to stop 1 week otherwise contraceptive effects and other benefits are lost for an entire month and even then, your periods might vary 

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
