Hi there, i am looking for some help, i take ma period today but it hasnt came yet, do i start the pill when it comes ?

Hi, I'm sure not what type of


I'm sure not what type of birth control pills you are taking. Most pills have a pill for each day of the month (even when you have your period). I suggest you call the doctor who prescribed the birth control pills and ask him/her for instructions on how to take your birth control pills.

If you got the pills from a pharmacy they should have included instructions and offered a consultation if you did not understand the instructions. Your other option if this is the case is to call the pharmacy where your pills came from and talk to the pharmacist.

Best Regards,
