Q: Okay i was given the birth control lutera by my doc yesterday and im really confused about how and when to take it. It says to start the first day of my period and today is feb 7 and my period isnt suppost to start until like the 20th so do i wait to take them?. Also i read that i can take them the sunday after my period starts and the 20th is a friday . whats the difference with takin them the first day of your period and the first sunday of your period?. Also theres white and peach pills in my pack. when my period does come do i start it with taking the white ones or the peach ones than goin to the white ones when my period is done?
