You don't have to start the very first day your birth control says you start your period. I usually start late monday, monday nights or tuesday. But if you havn't the whole week, you could be pregnant, or there maybe something wrong with the pills, so go see your doctor, or a teen clinic.

Do you take your birth control the day your period starts?

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.
