question about birth control

Recommended Posts

Hey I've gotten ortho tri cyclen lo as birth control and also to hopefully help a lil bit with my acne. The nurse practitioner at the planned parenthood said i could start taking it this sunday even though i haven't started my period yet (i'm due sometime in the next 2 weeks, but I'm often irregular and jump around so it could be longer). the packet says wait until the first day of your period or the first sunday after your period starts though, so i didn't know if it was safe and effective to start this sunday even though i haven't gotten my period yet? someone plz help me!! i wanna start taking the bcp's tonight but i need some answers before then! thank you.

You should ask the nurse practitioner why his/her instructions are different from the package insert. Knowing that will enable you to make the choice.
