What if you take the pill before your period is over?

It's perfectly fine. It just cuts it shorter, depending on how many placebo pills you have and when the next normal pill is after your placebo pills. I have 4 placebo pills in my pack and when I finish them I'm usually still on my period. After taking one normal pill the next day after finishing my placebo pills, my period starts to get lighter and lighter until its gone.

Do you have to take the full week of placebo pills or can you start the hormone pills part way through to stop your period?

You could start the hormones pills part way through the placebo pills to change the next month's cycle (say you would have your period on a Wednesday next month, instead of a Friday) but it would not affect the cycle you are currently on. When your uterine lining starts to shed, it sheds. For example, Yaz only has 4 placebo pills instead of 7, like some birth control brands. For many women on Yaz, they won't start their period until the last day of placebo pills. They will start their period on the last placebo and continue to have it through the first few days of the hormone pills.

Are you not supposed to get a period while on the pill?

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.
