When to start taking Contraceptive Pill?

Patient: I’m not on the pill and my period is due in 4 days, If I start taking the pill today will it delay my period ??

 

 

Doctor: Taking the contraceptive pill before your periods will not delay or prolong your menstrual cycle. If you plan to start o on oral contraceptives, I would advise you to take the first dose on the first day of your period. I hope than answers your question, take care.
