What will happen if you dont take your sugar pills?

They are just there as a reminder that you are taking pills, and not get you off track. You dont really have to take them (they are just sugar pills, there is no medicine in them), you just have to remind yourself that the Sunday after your period ends , you will need to start your new pack and continue with your daily birth contol routine.

What if you dont take the plcebo pills?

The cycle is three weeks of hormones, one week of no hormones, as you pretty much figured out by the fact that of the 28 pills in the pack, seven of them are placebos. When BC pills first came out, they used to only give you the 21 hormone pills. You were supposed to take the pills for 21 days, then not take pills for seven days before starting hormones again. The problem with that is people would start taking the pills again at nine days or eleven days or whatever, and a lot of women got pregnant. "How could this happen? These things are supposed to keep you from getting pregnant!" And they do, if you keep to the schedule. Now, they give you 21 days of hormones and seven placebos, and you get to take one pill every day. If you get into the habit of always taking a pill every day, you won't mess up the cycle. So as to your answer: if you can remember to start taking the hormone pills again after seven days, you don't need to take the placebos. Then again, they won't hurt you if you take them.

When on birth control pills do you still take the green placebo pill if you dont start your period?

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).
