I'm 22 years old and this is my first time ever taking birth control. My period started yesterday, and I had my appointment this morning. My doctor prescribed me Sprintec (Ortho Cyclen generic).

I'm going on vacation January 4th-10th, and I do not want to have my period during that time or at least at the beginning will be okay. I know with a Sunday start your period will have towards the beginning on the week... which is nice. But I just really don't want to have my period toward the remaining half of my vacation.

I'm not exactly sure when your period start when you take the inactive pills, if someone can explain I'll just calculate it myself.

Is starting during your period better (even though it'll be a second day start for me) than a sunday start? What did you do??
