My doc said she "had to tell me" to wait until the closest sunday to start the pack. Just wondering if it is really important. And did she say that I wouldnt be protected now? Well how long would I not be protected?
If you are not already on the pill, that is the reason you are not safe, you will be safe after the 21rst pill in your pack, even on your period, if you take them correctly, 1 per day, at as close to 24 hours apart without skipping or forgetting any. They sometime say you are safe after a week on the pills, don't be that careless, use a back up until you have taken the first 21 pills. Yes, you should wait until you the first sunday after your period, if it starts on a sunday, start the pack then. If you start it now, not on your cycle, it may whack your cycle out.
