Have you gotten your period yet? I hope so. You didn't follow any of the 3 different possible directions your pills may have. Please read YOUR directions and follow them EXACTLY. People who don't get pregnant.
Here's what the University of Pittsburgh Medicine Center has to say about the pill:
"How Do I Start the Pill?
Your doctor or nurse will suggest 1 of the following methods to begin taking the pill:
Start your first pack of pills on the first day of your menstrual period. Use a backup method of birth control (such as condoms with spermicide) until you start the pill. The pill will start working right away for birth control if you start on the first day of your period.
Start your first pack of pills on the Sunday after you start your menstrual period. You should use a backup method of birth control (condoms with spermicide) until you start the pill. You also will need to use a backup method of birth control (condoms with spermicide) during the first 7 days of the pill package.
Start your pills today. If you start your pills today, you should use a backup method of birth control (condoms with spermicide) during the first 7 days of the pill package. Birth control pills will start to protect you from pregnancy after the first week, if you take them correctly."
