A little confused about the pill and when period should start

I am on the pill to try and start my period which hasnt come for a while now. im on 28 day pills and today was my first placebo pill. So if i do get my period when would it start? towards the end of my 7 day placebo set of pills or at any time during the week?

Your period can start at any time this week. Most women get their periods after the 3-4 pill, though. It's not uncommon not to get a period during the first cycle, either, so don't be alarmed if that happens.

Yup, it can take a few days. I have had months that I started the day I took the first active pill of a new pack. Then I have also skipped once or twice. So, as long as there are no medical reasons you have found, just keep taking the pills every day without skipping a day. You might not have a period this month, but that isn't too uncommon, particularly since you are having such irregularities anyhow.

It brings the "period" (which is actually not a real period, but a withdrawl bleed) on because when you are taking the pills, it elevates your horomone levels, then when you are off them (on the placebos) the hormone level drops, causing the lining of your uterus to shed.
