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.

You don't have to take the sugar pills, they are just there to help you keep track of when to start taking the next pack of pills. You could take all 7 of the sugar pills at one time if you wanted to. They have no effect on your body. They are only sugar. They have no purpose other than to help you keep track of time.
