Quickie question. On the instructions and on previous advice it says to start on Day 1 of period. I've just had DS (5 weeks old) and bf exclusively. I bf DD exclusively for 4 months then weaned her but was still bf on and off at 7.5 months. I never had a period and then became pregnant again so obviously I'm not waiting until my periods begin. Can I start taking the minipill before periods start?
