I get my Yasmin pills prescribed through my GP. I forgot to ask for a repeat prescription and was meant to start my new pill packet on sunday after having a 7 day break. But I have only recieved a new packet today (Wednesday/Thursday) as sending this email at gone midnight. When is best to start this new packet?.
So you were supposed to start this last Sunday but just got your pills today? You should probably go ahead and wait until your next period and start either the day your period starts or the Sunday after if starts, if you prefer a Sunday start. You will need to use another method of birth control this month and for 7-14 days after you start the new pack. When I was doing family planning we had our women starting the Pill to take a full pack before they were considered protected but most manufacturers claim you are protected by seven full days of pills.
