  • The ob was concerned I wasn't ovulation so I was instructed by my Ob to start them the day after my period stopped so for me around day and then continue to use them until I get a pos or I start my period. I think the package gives instructions to start using them around day 9 or 10 then use them daily until you get a pos... It's been a while though.
