If you are talking about the last week in your pill pack, yes, you are supposed to start you period that week. I don't know what they are made of, but they are often called sugar or inactive pills. They aren't always green though. It depends on the kind of pill you have. If you are talking about another week, I don't know what they are made of either, but you aren't supposed to start your period until the last week of your pill pack. Please be aware that not everyone starts their period during the sugar pills, especially when you first start taking the pill. So if you have been taking your pill perfectly, every day no fail and at approximately the same time, chances are you are not pregnant. My first month on the pill I didn't get a period at all and freaked out but the test was negative, the following month I got my period on the third week and it stopped before the sugar pills. Many times it's just your system adjusting to the hormones.
Hello. Yes if you start your pills earlier you will start your period within four weeks. If you miss any pills, you will start your period earlier.
Yes, if these green pills represent the placebo/sugar pills, then your period will start during the time you are taking the green pills. If you do not get a period during this week, you should consult with your physician. You may need to take a pregnancy test.
In some birth control brands, the green pills are active pills . In other brands, the green pills are placebos (sugar pills or reminder pills) and that's when you have a withdrawal bleed. Talk to your pharmacist or health care provider to get information specific to your brand of birth control pills.
okay well if the green pills are the ones you take during your period then no, you see the ones you take during your period are empty.
NO. The green pills are just so you continue to take a pill every day. It is not a 'period' you have while on them just a 'withdrawal' bleed so if you want to skip it for a holiday or something, miss them out and go straight to the next pack.
No, the green pills are placebos that are there just as a reminder to stay on track with the rest of your pills.
You're supposed to start your period after you start taking the placebo pills. To keep on a routine, you should take the placebo pills on their designated days (the last 7 days of the 28 day cycle).
You don't have to, my period comes 2 days into the sugar pills.
If you have finished with the pills and the faux pills, had your period, then you start the new set of pills after the last day of your period.
The white pills are inactive hormones which is when you're off your period. And the green pills are active hormones and these you usually take when you are going through your period. But its still okay if you're not on you're period during the green pills cause the pills could make you a little bit late on you're period.
In some birth control brands, the green pills are active pills and should not be skipped. In other brands, the green pills are placebos (sugar pills or reminder pills) and can be skipped. Talk to your pharmacist or health care provider to get information specific to your brand of birth control pills. If you skip active pills, your period will be early and you increase the risk of pregnancy. If you skip placebo pills, your period will be delayed.
you will get your period when you start taking your "period" placebo pills in your pack
Hi :-) Yes, this is normal. There is no time limit for when you start your period during the sugar pills. As long as you start your period during the seven day worth of sugar pills then this is normal.
You start your period when on the sugar pills. Your period should start within three days of your first sugar pill - the exact time will differ from woman to woman.
You should not be pregnant when you start taking the pills as you start taking them within a week of the start of your period and if you have a period you are 99.5% sure you are not pregnant. However if you are pregnant the pills will have no effect.
This sometimes happens with birth control.

You start the first pill the Sunday after the FIRST day of your period ideally, but can be any day of the week, but after the 1st day of your period. Your cycle is four weeks long, you take colored pills for 3, and take white pills for 1 and you will have your period that week, then start a new pack of pills.
You should still get a period each month while on birth control. You will usually start your period during the week that you take your placebo pills, because they have no hormones in them. If you skip the placebo pills and start your active pills instead, this will delay your period.
Period time disturbed
You start taking them the first Sunday after you had your period I believe.
Go to your Ob/gyn & he or she can give you pills or something for your period to start
Hi, You should continue taking your pills as normal and as they were prescribed to be taken by your doctor.
Green tea DOESN'T start your period, but it can ease the pain from menstrual cramps.
Hi, Your period will usually occur during the period you take the non-active pills or have a break from taking your pills. The break lasts for 7 days and your period will occur any time during the 7 days.
