If you are already on the pill, stopping them and starting them on a different day to reschedule your period puts you at risk for pregnancy and/or make you have irregular bleeding for a while. If you are just starting the pill, you can start it on the day you start your period or the Sunday immediately following your period (even if you are still bleeding). Sunday startup is popular because it would ensure that you won't have your period on any weekend.

Technically, those seven hormone free pills are the days you are supposed to be on your period. You skip those, you skip the period. If you finish your period early, yes, you are still safe to have even though you aren't taking an active pill. FYI, all these questions should be in the information packet that was included with the pills.

If you took all of your pills but after the sugar pill period you forget to take the birth control by 8 hours and have unprotced sex can you get pregnant?

You're probably safe but why do you take the sugar pills? Why don't you just take the proper ones? That way you'll always be safe.

If you are on birth control and you know when you are getting your period how can you change it so you won't be on your period at a certain time?

if you're on the pill, skip the "inactive" pills and start again on a new pill pack instead. the inactive part is what gives you your period. it's safe and everything. Just continue to take your active pills without a break or taking sugar pills and you will stop your period. It won't hurt you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist.
