Pillls: You can start ocp the first day of your cycle or the first sunday after you start your period. Ocp can decrease the amount of bleeding you see, but also might give you some spotting in midcycle or at the end of the pill cycle. Be patience and most of the time those symptoms go away after 2 or 3 months of using the pill.
