In brief: Lighter vs absent

Your period will likely be absent vs lighter and you will potentially have some irregular bleeding over the next several months.
The reason for waiting until your next period to start is to insure that you are not pregnant. If you are certain this is not the case, you can go ahead and start the pills now.
