... to start since my period hasn't arrive, or if it's even still a good idea. This isn't the first time my period has been late. I used to take Necon, but stopped for about 2 months, so now I am switching birth control. But does anyone know when I should start since my period hasn't arrived yet?
Most birth control pills you either start on the first day of your period or the Sunday following the start of your period. Either way you do need to wait for your period before you can start the ortho. I tried Ortho myself two years ago & those were the two options my doctor told me.
