Why do I have to wait until my period begins to start taking the pill?
I had my baby in September and I’m still waiting to get my first period. The doctor gave me birth control pills to start taking but told me to wait until my period starts. What would happen if I just started taking them now? I have a big event coming up in 2 weeks and I’m concerned that I’ll get my period right in time to ruin it. And it would also be nice to stop worrying about condoms and avoiding pregnancy. Would starting the pill before actually getting my period be a very bad idea?
