Hello, I am about to start taking the pill, I am getting married in 2 weeks and my period is due in 1 week, if I start taking the pill now and continue for 21 days is it too late to stop the period for this month?

Hello, my name is Dr Uzair and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Yes, if you start the pill now, it will mess up your hormones so better start within forst 5 days of starting the period and you will be protected right away.
