Your period would probably not come until your 3rd or 4th sugar pill. If you started taking the pills on the Sunday before your period did that period come?
Continue taking your birth control pills as scheduled.
Hello. You can delay your period by one week by skipping the sugar/placebo pills and continue on taking the hormone pills.
if you are on birth control, you can usually skip your period by not taking your sugar pills, and starting your new pack of pills instead. This is not advisable to do a lot.

Continue taking your pills as normal but perform a pregnancy test.
It would be pointless. The sugar pills do not contain anything in them to keep you from getting pregnant. The placebos (or sugar pills) are there as "reminders" to keep you in the habit of taking them and so when you know to start a new pack. The sugar pills are not needed during your period,that's why they are sugar pills. If you take the placebos when you are supposed to be taking the "active" ones, they are inaffective and you might as well not be taking them at all.
You just won't have a period. but don't do that too often.
The last pills in your birth control pack do NOT have actual medication in them. They're only there to keep you in the habit of taking a pill every day. You will get your regular period on the days you are taking the inactive/sugar pills. Brands vary, but most 28-day packs have 7 sugar pills in the last row. They should be clearly marked as such, and are always a different color than the active pills.
Yes continue taking your pills as normal. If this happens again perform a pregnancy test and see your DR about changing your BC pills.
