Took Birth Control Before Period Started (First Time Taking it)
Patient :Hello! I got birth control yesterday (Monday) and decided to start it right away. I'm worried that maybe I should have waited until my period started. It was suppose to come today, but I think that because of the pill that I took yesterday, it ceased it from coming. Am I protected from pregnancy even though I started it before my period? Would it be best to stop taking the pill now since I'm only one day in and just wait until my period comes this week to retake it?
