How safe is taking Lybrel over Jolivette?

I'm a 21 year old girl and want to change to a different birth control. I've been taking Jolivette (no estrogen) for awhile and haven't missed a dose. The pill I want to switch to is Lybrel, which stops your period altogether. It says to start on the first day of period - for those who haven't taken any pills yet. Can I start immediately since I'm just switching or is waiting the right thing?

Hi,

Wait till your next periods and switch your pill from then and start. But before switching to any other drug make sure it is prescribed after a gynecologist consultation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana Rajesh Babu, OB & GYN Specialist
