Well aside from having chlamidya,two weeks ago i went to the gyn that how i found out i had it but i was prescribed bc pill again(although i am not having sex for a long long time this had really tramatized me) and a different type of bc pill.Its called Lo Orval.When she gave it to me i didnt start it because i was waiting to start it when i got my period.So today i got my period and was gonna start my first pill.But today is thrusday and im confused because my pack has the days going around and i was wondering which day do i take the thrusday pill or sunday pill being that its a new pill pack or should i just wait till sunday to take the first pill.Really confused. Oh and i guess the chlamidya infection must be subsiding because i feel much better in my body and i dont have that nausa feeling or ithching feeling no more. [Smile]

You take the first pill in the pack. Usually pill packs will be pre-marked for a Sunday start (so the first pill will be labled for Sunday) but will have a sticker that you can put on to adjust for your start day if you do not wish to be a Sunday start. Check with your pill pack/information to see if you have a sticker like that. (Or, if you have one that has a dial-pack despensor, you can usually change the day that way as well.)

If you find that you don't have a sticker to show the day change, you may just want to wait till Sunday and do a Sunday start instead so that the pill you are taking will line up correctly with the day you are taking it. Pills have to be taken in order, so don't skip ahead.
