If you skip: If you skipped the last week of pills and immediately started the next pack then you will not get a period. The withdrawal from hormones during the last week of the pack is what triggers the menstrual cycle. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy.
