Question
I am 20 years old advised by my doctor to use meliane Contraception pills I will be using it for the first time the issue is that the leaflet of the tablet pack says that I have to start with the Fist  day of my period i am confused as my periods ended day before yesterday so do I have to wait till my periods start again or I have to start from Friday which was the first day of my last period

Answer
Hello Shah, I'm not familiar with this type of pills. I think it is birth control pill. You really need to talk to your doctor about this. I don't advise birth control pills because of hormonal problems and side effects. Why not consider a non-hormonal birth control method? Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com so we can talk about this.
