BCP Start Date Help!

Just went to the doctor and she gave me tri-cyclen lo pills (I used to take alesse) and she told me to read the info booklet, which I did. So it says to start on day 1, 5 or the sunday after menstration starts, but I was wondering if there were any other ways to start it because my period ended 6 days ago. And I will be on vacation in Asia when my next period is due so the time/date change might mess up my schedule. TIA!
Looking for: AG ag-ed 5 year stilt sz 24/25 & Hudson skinnies 24 for cheap to try them out!

your pill won't be effective this month.
if your cycle ENDED six days ago you've likely ovulated already or will soon.

best to just skip this cycle and start the next. i would probably do the Sunday thing because that would be easiest to track.

....bbbbbut i never took pills so maybe others will give you a better clue.
you buy now

That sounds right to me. Starting on Sundays was always the easiest to track and I also would wait until your next period. If you start taking them now, it will change your cycle.

My favorite thing about the pill is you can start whenever you want so you have your period when it's convenient for you. I used to start on a wed. but that gave me my period over the weekend, so I switched to a sunday start and that gets me my period during the week. Keep in mind though that if you switch your day your pill may not be effective that month. Also keep in mind that it takes approx. 3 months for your cycle to get on it's regular schedule. I've been on the pill 10 years and I love that I know my period will start at 10 am tues. and end at 4pm fri. lol.
Go Shopping!!

I use a 24 day pill and start on a Wednesday. That way I have my period during the week! Sunday start made my weekends no fun.
