It's convenient to start the Birth Control pill, patch, ring, injection, IUD, or implant on the day your period starts, as you then have immediate protection; however, it's not strictly necessary. If you're talking about taking birth control after you've been on it a while, you should take your birth control as scheduled regardless of vaginal bleeding.
