When to start tri cyclen lo 28?

I have a question about the birth control pill Tri-cyclen lo 28. I am not sure when to take my 1st pill. I have been off the pill for about two months now, but want to start taking it again. I began my period today. Do I take 2 pills today (as the pack starts on Sunday), wait until next Sunday, or begin today as a Day 1 start and re-label the package? Thank you!

Dear Claudia,
I have gone through your mail & u have said that you began your periods today.
So, you can mark today as Day 1 & start taking your pills.
Take 1 pill a day & make sure you are taking them approximately same time everyday.
You may have to re-label the package...but as the pills are color coded, I hope you won't have much problem in keeping track of the schedule.
Tri-cyclen lo 28 is a very effective birth control pill, given that you are taking it regularly.
Thank you
