I just started taking the pill and I am on my green pills right now. I still have 4 more left.. I have been reading some info but I can't find the answer to my question. I was wondering when you are supposed to start your period.. This is my first month taking it. Is it after you have taken all the pills including the green ones or a few days into taking the green ones. I was just curious about this.. Thank you for your time!

your green pills are sugar pills. they let your hormone levels fall low enough so that you can menstruate. of course, that takes a few days. In some women, their periods come on Tuesday (assuming you are a Sunday Starter). In my case, they come on Thursday. It can vary, but it will start during your green pills, not after.

srm? wtf? iyhta ... rtfm!
