I am on my first pill pack ever of birth control and I'm done taking all the blue ones and I took my first green one tonight and I still haven't got my period. I started my first pill pack the first Sunday of my period which was 3 days after my period had started. Will I get my period while taking the green pills or will I get it at the beginning of my next pill back? I always am spotting right now.
Your period well start in the week you are taking the green pills. Usually around the 3 rd or 4th day. If you are still bleeding you still start the next pack when you finish the green pills.
You could get your period any time during the week of the green pills. If you have spotted a lot or had breakthrough bleeding during the month you may not have much of a period because there may be nothing left to shed. As long as you have taken the Pill properly and used back up condoms when appropriate, in your case, the first week of use, then you should be protected. It can take a few months for your body to get used to the new hormones so you may be a bit irregular the first few months. Just keep taking the pills in the order they come in the pack and start the new pack when it is time no matter what your body is doing. Eventually things will regulate and your period will be more reliable.

If I take 3 MonoNessa birth control pills would that work the same as taking the morning after pill?
