the pill

hey hey

im planning on going on the pill .. again, (god help everyone around me!)

anyway ive been on for 3 days and when i read through the leaflet it says they recommend you start your pill packet on the first day of your period, would it hurt to start on the third day? or is it important you follow it to the letter?

thanks in advance

xx

    Personally, I'd stick to the instructions...

    If you don't start on the first day of your period, then you need to use extra protection for 7 days e.g. condoms.
