It depends on what Birth Control you're using - people wrongly use 'birth control' to mean the combination birth control pill, so I'm going to assume this is what you mean. On the combination pill you don't menstruate full-stop, the purpose of this form of birth control is to suppress your menstrual cycles in order to stop ovulation from occurring, as you don't ovulate you don't menstruate. The bleeding women experience on the combination pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills - thus you will bleed sometime during the placebo week.
