Depends: If you have been using good birth control or not been having sex so you are positive you aren't pregnant (and a pregnancy test is negative) you can start your birth control pills now. You will have to use backup birth control this cycle. If you think it's possible you're pregnant then you have to wait until your period comes to be sure you aren't pregnant. ...Read more
