I'm on the pill, if I skip the sugar pill, does that mean I will skip my period?

In brief: Skipping BCP's
Skipping the last 7 pills of a 28 day package will not increase the chance of skipping your period.
It would be equivalent to taking 21 day pills. In both cases you wait 7 days before starting the next pill cycle.
