In brief: Starting BCP's

The traditional way to start bcp's is start on the 5th day of bleeding or the sunday after a normal period.
Since you are irregular this poses a problem. My suggestion is to do a blood pregnancy test to be certain that you are not pregnant (assuming that you have used condoms when having sex the last month), and if negative then start the bcp's.
