Hi, can I start taking birth control pills any day to delay my period? It will be my first time taking it as well.
I have regular period and my period starts every 25 days. My period is schedule to start on June 19 and I'm trying to delay it because I have a vacation planned next month. I got the "Aviane" birth control pills from my local clinic and the instructions said to take them during period/or on the first sunday after my period ends. But my period already ended and I'm passed the first sunday. I'm already on the second week. I did this on purpose assuming I could start my period later.
