How can I take birth control pills?

Every day. The way to take birth control pills is to take one pill a day every day, at about the same time. Most packs of pills have the days of the week written on the pack - so you know if you took that days pill or not. I sometimes have woman start the pack on the 5th day of the period or on the sunday following the first day of the period. When you finish a pack the next day start the next one.
