I have been on the pill for 1 mo to help reduce the bleeding I was having. Do I have to take the green sugar pills at the end of the pack? My husband and I were trying the pills for 1 mo since we are trying to get pregnant. If I dont take all the green pills will my cycle be normal. every 28 days? They as in the green pills are giving me the WORSE headaches.

If the green pills are the placebo pills (usually the last week of pills), there isn't anything in them that would cause symptoms. If the pills are in the middle of the pack, yes, you would need to take them.
