When can I start my birth control pills?

Okay. I went to the Dr. today she gave me Yaz...but she didn't tell me when to start it...I started my period on sunday and I am still bleeding should I go ahead and start them????....I just confused...I guess she thought since I've been on the pill before I would know...but I forgot...Thanks.....

  • Start them when you stop bleeding. Or 7 days from the time you started bleeding.

  • Read the instruction's!! I would start the first day of my period. If you get your period on sunday you start on that day. Do read the instruction's if you don't want to get prego.
