Welcome to ehealthforum,
While being on this birth control pills, you should get your periods after you take the 2 green pills (placebo pills) that is to say that you should get your periods while taking the blue pills (these contain 0.01 mg ethinyl estradiol). Continue with the next pack as instructed to have continued protection against pregnancy. For further clarifications, visit your doctor/gynecologist for detailed discussion.
Take care.
