I THINK you’re supposed to start the pills the sunday after your period starts.  Most BC pills have an insert with detailed instructions along with the pills.

You’re supposed to take them the Sunday after your period.

@zizzybeth:  you start from week 1, which are the active pills and just take it in that order.

You can start them whenever you want. Start with the active pills.

If it were me, I would start tomorrow. It’s not going to cause a problem with this cycle. You may notice some changes next cycle, and starting a pack after your period can sometimes minimize those changes or make the transition a little more predictable, but it won’t do any harm to start the day you get your period.

You can actually start your pills whenever you want. You don’t even have to start them on Sunday. Start with the active pills. I strongly recommend reading the insert that comes with the pills (not the little sheet from the phamacy.
