yaz....a question about when to start and some others

my dr. prescribed yaz for me today. I'm using it mainly to help regulate my hormones (pms,acne and skip periods around my wedding/honeymoon in may)
it's been a good 4 years since i have been on the pill and i'm confused as to when to start. it gives me two options..the sunday start or day 1 start. none of which will work for me unless i wait about a week until my period comes. is it ok to start taking it now and just use a back up for a week. (like the sunday start but no period involved). I expect a wacky period for the first couple months if i do this..so that's not a problem.

or should i just follow the instructions and wait for the first sign of my period and start the pack?

Also,from what i remember from the other brand of hbc i used (Kariva)..they recommended no more then 3 months of stacking...is that still the same for yaz?
lastly....will topical antibiotics (ziana gel:clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) interfere with yaz's effectiveness? i know oral antibiotics can..but i have never heard about topical

thanks vp!
