I just started birth control and I have 7 'reminder pills' when should I expect my period?

I don't really know how the pill works...I've had an IUD for 2 years and now I've switched to the pill. On what day should I expect to get my period if there are 7 "reminder' or 'inactive' pills?

  • The first couple months it may be different, but I always go my period on day 1 of the "reminder pills" and it lasted about 4 days.
