My last period started on June 28, today is Cycle Day 4. I'm starting birth control pills today. I want to schedule my next period to start on August 1. When should I stop taking the active pills in my birth control pak to make that happen?

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your ASK. It's best to discuss with your doctor as to when should you start the pills.
