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.
