Starting Birth Control?

So, I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and my gynaecologist prescribed me birth control and said to start taking it when I had my next period, but the problem is because my periods are so irregular, it's been about 75 days since my last period so I haven't been able to start yet! From what I've been able to see online, it doesn't actually matter when you start taking birth control, but I wanted to check here first in case anyone else had experience with this, or if there's anything specific to PCOS and starting on the first day of your period.

My sister has PCOS and she took the pill right away and it restored her body's natural hormones. Don't be scared to take your pills! It's really effective.
