Hi, I have a question about using BC, specifically Ortho Tri Cyclen. I’m 24 years old and I have always had pretty unpredictable periods and I literally have no idea when it is about to show up. Sometimes, I go nearly 3 months without having one. I recently got a 1 year supply of BC from Planned Parenthood so that I could try to take control of my unpredictable menstrual cycle.
I got my last period on February 23rd. I have not started my first pack yet because the woman at PP I spoke with said it would be easier to start on the Sunday of my period. Here’s the thing, I have no idea when my period is set to show up and I specially do not want to be on my period the weekend of April 13-15 because I will going on a camping trip.. So, is it safe to start the pack now and if I do that will that guarantee I won’t be on my period during that time? I’ve never used BC before so any advice would be really appreciated.
