Patient

Q: Hi my question is about switching birth controls. I was on the patch xulane for 3 weeks and now i am on my patch free week of the patch where its time for my period. I took the patch off on tuesday night and now its friday and im waiting for my period to start. This is usually normal. However today i decided to switch birth control and now i am on the pill ( larin fe 1,5/30) but i dont know when to start it since it is the week im suppose to get my period. Now do i start on my regular patch day as if i was still on the patch? Or do i start on a sunday the day it starts on the pill pack ? Help
