@ButtercupBetty:  You got a prescription without being told when to start it?

I would call and ask your doctor about it.

I would take the week off and start the pill the next Sunday, otherwise you risk breakthrough bleeding. I don’t think you would need condoms but better safe than sorry!

I would take a week off, but your doctor gave you a script without any sort of directions?

I’d find a new doctor.

@ButtercupBetty:  I would guess the way to start it would be like a PP suggested, stop the ring with a withdrawal bleed and then start the pill when you would usually insert a ring again.  The doctor should have informed you though!

Asking the pharmacist to check on the best way to do it is a good idea, many pharmacists are more knowledgable than doctors that way!
