Is it okay to start a new set of birth control pills after three days after your period? Or do i have to wait until my next period to start a new set?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

It depends what kind of birth control you are on. Some are Sunday starters, some must be started as soon as you period ends. 

Read the instructions and follow them carefully. Some are the kind you can start anytime you like so that's a good option for you. Otherwise, use condoms until it's the right time, according to your instructions.
