I have just started my period and not sure when to start my pills. It says to start now, but that means I'll be at the sugar pills in three weeks. Will I get my period in another three weeks when I get to the sugar pills? Or do I start the first week of another pack to avoid my period in three weeks and keep it at four week. I've never taken the pill before. Today is feb 28 and I will be on vacation from March 22-29 and do not want my period then. Help, when should I start the pill? Now while on period or wait until period is over? Or wait until a week before vacation? Thanks everyone
