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.

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).

If you skip the green pills and start your new pack as if you did take the green pills will you get your period?

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.

If you start the pill on the first day of your period when you have finished that pack do you immediately start the next one?

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.

What is the difference between the white and green birth control pills?

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.

Will your period be late if you do not take the green pills?

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.

What happens if you've already conceived when you start taking birth control pills?

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.
