Question about birth control adult content

Ok sorry if this is TMI but I want to make sure I do it right so I don't mess up lol. Anyways... My doctor put me on Birth Control and said when I start bleeding to go a head and start the pill. Well I started tonight so I should go a head and take my first pill right? Also I'm a little confused because the last time I was on birth control it was in a circle, and well this one is a sqare type packet and I'm not sure which one I take lol. There are four lines the top one says start then it goes down to week 4. So would I take the one that says start? I haven't been on birth control in many years so I'm not trying to sound stupid or anything. Thank you for your help!

  • is it the 'mini pill'? that's what i had and sounds like the packet the pills came in 4 lines, you just start with the first one in the packet, go from left to right starting at the first line...

  • I'm not sure if it's the mini pill or not. It's Tri-Sprintec Tab Barr Labs..... Generic for Ortho Tri-Cyclen Tab and it has 28 pills.

  • yes, you take your first one on the first day of your period.

    Makes sure you take them at the same time everyday. :)
