My daughter was prescribed Apri on November 2. She had never been on any form of BC pill and she is 17. Her period isn't due until November 17th'ish. I asked her doctor when she should start her pills and she said, "it is ok for her to start them whenever she feels like it". "It would probably be best if she start them on a Sunday though" and so I said, "like this sunday?" And she said, "yes".
Now, I am concerned how this will impact her cycle since she isn't due for her period until Nov 17th. What do we do with the pills when she starts her period or will it even start since she will still be on the hormone pill instead of the placebo?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Also, the doctor gave her a choice of taking Yaz or the Depo shot. she chose the Apri. Anyone have any feelings one way or the other about the other two forms?
One final thought... she has only been on the pill now for about 5 days and she is experiencing moodiness, grumpiness. do you know if there is anything that can aleive these types of side effects?
thanks for your help.
