If you're pregnant, you are not going to have a period (even if it's during the placebo pills). If you are really worried about being pregnant, I suggest you take a pregnancy test before starting a new pack.

You would definitely not get a period because your body would be making the hormones itself at that point.  So you would never experience that withdrawal of hormones that causes the "period" each placebo week.
