Patient :I just picked up my prescription to start birth control. It says to start the pills on the first day of my period or the Sunday after my period starts. My period isn't due for another 9 days, and sometimes it comes a few days late or early. Is it okay to start taking the pills now? Or do I have to wait? There's no chance that I'm pregnant as I'm not sexually active yet.
