Question HELP! I started my birth control pills incorrectly!

This is my first time ever on birth control pills. I started taking Yasmin pills on Sunday, which I thought was okay because it was the Sunday following my period. Turns out I was wrong, I was just looking through my calender and realized that I started my period on a Saturday, which means I should've started my pills the next day...What should I do? Oh my gosh, I'm freaking out. Should I just stop taking them, then wait for my period to arrive than start that same day? Please help!

Did you take it a week after your period started or the day after??

As long as you didn't have unprotected sex since your last period you might as well carry on. You will not be protected for the first 7 days and you may get some spotting.

I took it a week after...it was 8 days after I intially started my period, but 3 days since I had ended my period.

I would just continue them, your period will readjust to the pill schedule. Just remember to use another form of bc for the first week.
