Take your first pill the Sunday after you get your period, even if you are still bleeding on that Sunday. You don't necessarily have be a Sunday starter, I just find it easier.
Usually pills are started on the first SUNDAY after your period.
Check the package for specific information, but generally the pill should be started on the first Sunday after you START your period.
I was told to start the Sunday after my period starts, even if I'm still bleeding. And if I were to start my period on a Sunday, then I would take my first pill on that Sunday. My pills have the day marked next to them as they go around the circle and it starts out with a Sunday...so I believe that is the reason behind what I was told.
1. Sunday Start. Start the first pill of your pack on the first Sunday following the first day of your menstrual period. For example, if your period began on Tuesday, start your pills the following Sunday. If your period begins on Sunday, start your pills the same day. Use extra protection (condoms) for at least two weeks. You will have 28 pills to take. When you finish a pack of pills, start a new pack the next day regardless if you are still having a period or not. 2. Same Day Start. Begin your pills on the very first day of your menstrual period. No extra protection is needed if you are absolutely sure this is a normal period. Even though I would suggest you use condoms or some type of protection.
If you have your heart set on starting the pill on Sunday, then start on the first Sunday after you start your period. If your period starts on Sunday, start the pill on Sunday.Traditionally, women in the US started the birth control pill on Sunday. This has an obvious disadvantage - your health care provider's office is closed on Sunday, and many women start their pill late when they notice too late that they're out of pills. Do yourself a favor and consider starting on a weekday, as they do in most other countries.
You start the first pill the Sunday after the FIRST day of your period ideally, but can be any day of the week, but after the 1st day of your period. Your cycle is four weeks long, you take colored pills for 3, and take white pills for 1 and you will have your period that week, then start a new pack of pills.
You are supposed to start your pills the Sunday after ur period ends. But starting a week after ur period ends isn't bad either but ur period will be a little off track
(first time takin bc pills)what if your period stats on the Friday and it is your first time,shoud you wait for the Sunday to start?
That depends on the pill. If you are taking a Sunday start pill you should start taking the pills the Sunday after your period starts. There should be an information sheet with your pills that will tell you when to start. Otherwise, you might try contacting the pharmacists to make sure you're using them correctly.
Hello. Yes if you start your pills earlier you will start your period within four weeks. If you miss any pills, you will start your period earlier.
There should be instructions in your pill packet. Or your doctor should have told you when they prescribed them to you.You should start your pack the first Sunday after you start your period even if your period is not over yet. Do not skip any pills and start a new pack as soon as you finish your 7 inactive pills at the end of your pack.
You don't have to, my period comes 2 days into the sugar pills.
If you have finished with the pills and the faux pills, had your period, then you start the new set of pills after the last day of your period.
The next Sunday. __________________________ With Sunday start, you're supposed to start on the Sunday of getting your period, or the following Sunday. For example: You start your period on Sunday : START YOUR BC. You start your period Wednesday... WAIT TIL SUNDAY TO START. **make sure to read the inserts that come with your birth control, or go to the manufacturers website, the information is there for a reason!
You have to wait to take it til the Sunday after you start your period so that it can properly regulate your period. This way you are sure to have your period every 28 days.AnswerYou don't, you can start the pill any day of the week. If your period starts on a Monday, start taking the pill then. The only reason for starting on a Sunday is that the packet starts on a Sunday so you start at the beginning of a packet and work through to the end. Many women find this helps them remember and they don't have to go back to the beginning of the packet to take the last few pills. However if you find it easy to remember start at the beginning of your period, then you are protected from pregnancy immediately, just make sure you take all the pills in the packet.
You start your new pack of pills when you finish your old pack. Lets say you had you last pill on a Wednesday, you then start your new pill on Thursday. If its your first pack you have ever taken then you either start your first pill on the day you start your period or on the Sunday during your period. At first you period will not go with the pill correctly; it my take a month or two for your period to adjust.
You start taking birth control pills the first Sunday after your period ends, but Its always best to consult your Dr.
This is the the way most women start using The Pill. You need to use a back up method until you have taken 7 pills in 7 days the first month you start taking the pill. Beginning with your next packet of pills you will not need to use back up, no matter what day you start your period, start the pills on Sunday. Remember if you or your partner have more than one sex partner, BCP will not prevent STD.
you will get your period when you start taking your "period" placebo pills in your pack
There are three options.-The first 24 hours you get your period, and you start on the first pill of the pack.-The Sunday Starter, you start on the coming up Sunday-5-Day started, start the first pill 5 days after you start your period.It takes 7 days for it to become effective
Hi :-) Yes, this is normal. There is no time limit for when you start your period during the sugar pills. As long as you start your period during the seven day worth of sugar pills then this is normal.
When you take BC pills you should have a 7 day break - after this break you start the new pack of pills.
If you plan to be a "Sunday starter" then the general rule would be that you should start your pack the Sunday after your period, or on the same day your period starts if your period starts on Sunday. For example, if you get your period on Friday you should still take the pill starting on Sunday, even if you still have your period. However, if you got your period on a Sunday you should start your pack that day. However, starting the birth control pill in the first five days of menstrual bleeding gives you immediate protection. Starting on Sunday has disadvantages. Traditionally, women in the US started the birth control pill on Sunday. This has an obvious disadvantage - your health care provider's office is closed on Sunday, and many women start their pill late when they notice too late that they're out of pills. Do yourself a favor and consider starting on a weekday, as they do in most other countries.
It depends on the directions that your doctor has given you and yes you should follow them exactly as your doctor knows what is best for your body....although you can either start your pills on the first day of your period or there is a Sunday start where you take the first pill in the pack on the first Sunday after you start your period hope this helps, Good Luck and God Bless!!!
