Yes, you will still have your period if you don't take the sugar pills. The pills have no effect on your cycle. They are like a place holder to keep you in the habbit of taking your pills at the same time every day.

If you finish your active pills on a Saturday and do not take the first sugar pill on Sunday and start the new pack on Monday will you still skip your period?

What happens if you take one sugar pill of your birth control and skip the rest and still have a light period?

As long as you start your next packet on or before the date you were scheduled to start, skipping the sugar pills does not change the effectiveness of using the pill. You may be asking about starting the next pack early. You can do so, but the timing and amount of bleeding you have is a bit unpredictable. This may be the situation about which you're asking. Lastly, if it's your first pack of birth control pills, you may have choice noticed that hormonal birth control like the pill can make your period lighter than it was without the pill.

While on Birth control do you take the white pills while you have your period?

Yes, you should always continue to take your birth control unless your physician tells you to stop. Stopping your birth control and having unprotected sex will make you become pregnant. If you are experiencing any bleeding before the expected date or time of your period, you are most likely experiencing spotting or breakthrough bleeding. This is bleeding that is not considered a period, it is however a side effect from birth control that can last up to 3 months when you first begin birth control.

What do I do if when I come to the sugar pills in my birth control I don't have my period Do I still take the sugar pill or take a normal hormonal pill?

Take the inactive (sugar) pills, then start your next packet on time. Some pills, for some women will stop your period from ever coming, as long as you are taking the pill. You can use a HPT once your period is a week late, if it is negative it is safe to assume you are not pregnant and your periods have stopped from taking BCP. If you have any questions call you prescribing doctor or clinic.

With the traditional birth control pill you take a cycle of pills every day for 21 days and then 7 days of sugar pills. In the 7 days of the sugar pills you have a period.

In both cases after the period you start a new cycle of pills.
