    It's a placebo pill. That is the week that you should have your period. They are there so that you don't get out of the habit of taking a pill. It isn't necessary that you take them, but it keeps your routine going, even during your period.

    they are there to remind you of taking the pills everyday so that in the 7 day period you dont forget and lose the habit. they are just sugar pills
