Can I temporarily use NuvaRing to block period?


I have been on NuvaRing for about a year after having trouble with IUDs. I was prescribed to take it the traditional way - i.e. two weeks in, one week out, with my period occurring during the no-ring week. However, I’d really like to delay or totally skip my next period (I’ll try not to be vulgar, but it occurs during the only visit I’ll have with my boyfriend during 6 months temporarily living on different continents). Would it be safe for me to keep my ring in during this time? If so, do I just take the old ring out and put a new one in once the week I normally have no ring in is over? Or should I leave the ring in, and then take it out for a week to have my period then?
