Generally that is how one should start taking the pill (at the start of your next cycle), however, if your dr says its okay, and you are mentally okay with having a potentially longer cycle, you could start it now.

When I had to stop taking mine due to an unplanned pregnancy, I had started a new pack and used 3 or 4 days. Then once the pregnancy was over (ectopic), and I had my next cycle (and I had to wait for that- dr orders), I resumed on my partial pack.

I don't know when you last had your cycle, but if you want to start taking it, and then take the inactive pills after a week or two, that might get your body to have a cycle, but I understand that you might not want to do that.

I suggest talking to your dr, and ask them if you should start the pack now (and have a long cycle) or wait until your next cycle. If they give you the okay to start the pack and have an extra long cycle, then you can do that.

Whatever you decide to do, you need to be fully aware of what you wish to do.

I am ttc. I have ovarian cysts and need to regulate my cycle on this pill first.

Hubbys not open to the idea of the storage :(

I know right!?
Thing is I'm hopping my period will come.
Or Ill have to find a way to naturally boost it.
But before this pregnancy I was a 33 day cycle so on the first of next month. Then he comes home on the 9th for a week. So Ill have to boost ovulation with soy cause I dont have Clomid yet. With soy I ovulate on CD 9/10. Again if my period starts. I should have asked for the Birth control that would at lest start my period.
