I just got my first pill pack, and it's not for the purpose of contraception. It's to balance my hormones for other things... but anyway... I want to start taking it now, but my period's start was a week and a half ago. The doctor said it was okay for me to start at any time, it just wouldn't provide any birth control until my next cycle. Works for me. My question is, do I start on the first pill? And what should I do when it comes time for my 'normal' period time? I should have asked my doctor, but I forgot! Sigh. I'll call to confirm, but if I could get some general direction now, I'd appreciate it.
For reference, I have the 28 pill pack, with the 7 placebo pills.
I'm aware of the Sunday start and 5 day after start methods, but I'm not interested in those, in case anyone would like to recommend them. =P
Any information would be VERY much appreciated.
