Is it okay to stop taking your birth control pill in the 3rd week and have a period for 7 days and then continue taking your 3rd week pills after?

You can do that, although I'm not sure why you would, unless you just want to have a period earlier. If you do so, be sure to start your next pack's active pills immediately after completing that third week's pills. Do not take a "placebo week" or "pill free week," as you will risk prenancy. Use a back up method of birth control during the week you're taking that "third week" late.

Can you delay your period for one week by going onto the next pack for one week then have your period and after can you just take the remainder of the 2nd pack then get your period again?

Just take the remainder of the second pack and have your period then. It is possible to cause a bleed a week late by stopping the pills on the second pack after a week, but this then mucks up your cycle with the pills and you could also fall pregnant.

When will you start your period if you are on birth control and you are on the final week for that packet of pills which is the week you take placebo pills?

It really depends on the person and how long you've been taking the pills for. Some people will start their period the day or the day after they start taking the placebo pills. Some will start within 3 or 4 days, and some will start the day before they are to resume the regular pills. If you just started taking the pills, your period may be very irregular for the first couple months (usually regulated by month 3). Just continue to take the pills on a normal basis and you should be regulated soon.

Does starting the last week of birth control pills start your period?

To my knowledge the last week of birth control pills are placebos. That means they are simply sugar pills that help keep you in a routine. I think the lack of regular birth control pills during that last week cause you to start your period because you stop the hormones associated with those pills. Of course, I haven't taken them for over 10 years and the new types may be different.

If someone is on the pill and wants to delay her period only one week should she take 4 weeks of active pills with no pause and when should she start the new pack?
