I started the Placebo pill yesterday (Sunday) and picking up new pack tonight - was going to start the new pack tonight after taking one of the placebo pills, will this force me to skip my period this month and move the timing for next month a week earlier?
Start it tonight. All you can do is hope that it won't happen. Don't forget to take your pills with you. It will move the timing, you would still start the following pack when you are done with the sugar pills on this pack.
You dont start with placebo pills. There is nothing (no active drug) in them and they have no function. They are inert, which means they are nothing more than a sugar pill. They are in the pack to remind you to take a pill each day. They do not "bring on your period". It is the withdrawal of the hormones in the active pills that makes your period start. To skip your period, you take the months active pills and then skip the placebos and go straight to the active pills in the next month pack. There is no guarantee that this will work however. Some women do spot a bit anyway.
