Last week wednesday I startes taking birth control pills. The lady said I had to wait a week until the pills stayed to work to have sex without a condom Four days into taking the pills I got my period..so I was really confused. At the end of the month..there are these green placebo pills with no hormones that allow you to have your period. S I'mo thinking if I got my period now How can i have one again in two weeks I called someone in a c linic and she said I should get my period again If I have sex and don't get a period I'm gonna start to freak out again..which is why I got the pills in the first place..do you have any idea what I should do?

Really birth control pills are supposed to be started on the first Sunday of your period, and the first 21 active pills should all be taken correctly before you are counted as completely safe from getting pregnant, the lady is wrong. Because you were told incorrectly how to start them, your cycle will likely be erratic and and you should use a back up method until you are thru with your second pack. You can call a pharmacist and double check my info, but if you fear pregnancy, it is better to be safe than sorry. I would switch clinics or drs since they told you how to start the pills wrong and mislead you to believe you are safe after only 7 active pills.
