Starting Triphasil

Hello Doctor,

how are you?


I got a prescription for Triphasil, but I forgot to ask my doctor this question:


why must you start it on the 1st day of your period?


Thanks.

If you start the inactive pills on the first day of your period, you let the pills slot in with your normal menstrual cycle, avoiding possible breakthrough bleeding.
