Hi ita the beginning of April and my period is suppose to come on the 14th I havent started my birth control but I'm also goin on vacation the 21st. I was wondering if it's okay to start taking it now even though I have yet to get my period ... Or should I wait !? It's been very irregular these past few months so I'm not even exactly sure if it will come the 14th or later. Please help ! Thank you...
Birth control pills are usually started after the period starts or on the first Sunday after the periods.First of all if your periods have been irregular it could be due to various causes as PCOD,Hormonal imbalances,Pelvic disease,endometritis,thyroid.
Birth pills should be started only after proper examination so that they can be prescribed accordingly.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
