I started birth control the 17th of February. Aren't I supposed to start a new pack every 17th of each month?

You are not supposed to start a new birth control pack on the same date each year. This is because the numbers of the pills in the pack are normally 28, meaning after this date is when you are supposed to start a new pack. The cycle of 28 days completes on different days in each month.

Usually they are a 28 day cycle, so it would not be exactly the same date every month.

No, there's different days in the month. It goes by cycles. And Feb had 2 less days at least compared to most months.
