I am starting bc for the first time soon. My gyno told me to take the first pill on the first day of my period. However, the pamphlet tells me I can do this, OR start the Sunday after my period begins.
I am NOT concerned about its contraceptive ability and how it differs with the different start times.
What I am concerned about...... What would be less of a "hormonal shock" to my body? I am taking the pill to even out some hormone issues. Would I have less side effects (breakthrough bleeding, acne) if I choose one start time over the other?
This is concerning Yaz if that matters.
