Welcome to ehealthforum,
You can start taking your birth control pills if you are starting them within 7 days of your actual scheduled start date. Use back-up protection if having intercourse while being on this pill pack for additional protection (you may not have effective protection since you will start the pill pack late). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification assistance.
