Should I start bc pill right before going on vacation?

I’m going on vacation next week and just got my bc pill. I haven’t taken one in 14 years. My period should also show up next week. Should I take it or wait until after vacation?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Sorry about this big delay in response!  We'd love am update for when you started the pill and how it is going. It's best to follow package insert directions and your doctor's guidance for these things. Starting birth control packs usually is recommended to happen on the first SUNDAY after you started your period.  Hopefully it all worked out and you had an outstanding vacation.
