First Pill


Hi @Dr_Paula
I have just recieved my first set of combined pills from SH24. I am ten days late for my period (I have had two periods since I last had sex), I am just wondering if I should start taking my pill or if i should wait until my period starts.
Thank you.


Hello @emma

Yes you can start your pill anytime. You will need to use condoms for the first 7 days. It would be worth checking a pregnancy test in 3 weeks time.

Many thanks
