The green pills are where I am supposed to have my period but I haven't gotten it yet. I have two more green pills left, does this mean that I will have my period for possible 1-2 days because I'll start a new pack back on the white pills? I'm just sort of confused, this is my first time on birth control.
Your period can start any time during the week of the green pills. If you start at the end of the pack, just start a new pack, you may bleed for a day or two after you start the new pack. When you are on the pill, your uterus doesn't get as much lining in it so you don't have as much to bleed, so your periods can be light, and sometimes you may even skip a period. It takes a few months for you body to develop a new rythym with the pills. Once you are used to them, you'll have a better idea what to expect.
