I usually would get my period on placebo pills on the third day, and I skipped my period by not taking placebo pills for a couple of months. I started to take them again and had my period last month, and this month I am on the third day, but it has not come. Could my body just be changing? Is it normal to get my period farther into the placebo pills?

Yes, what you are experiencing is very common, especially if you have been on the pills for a while. The birth control pill will actually thin the lining of the uterus over time, and many women barely have any bleeding during the placebo week, we sometimes call these pill periods as it is often just some very light spotting or brown discharge.
It is ok if you do not have bleeding during the placebo week, as long as you have been taking your pills every day and you are sure you are not pregnant.
