or do I have to wait until I get my period again
You need to start the pill (if you take the combined oral contraceptive) on the first day or first Sunday of your period, as your doctor directs you to, so you need to get a period first.
If you are breast feeding you need to take the progestin only pill ... I'm not sure about the guidelines for that ... some doctors may say you could start taking it before you get a period.
Please discuss with your doctor.
