Sorry this question wasn't answered earlier... If you start your pill early you will need to wait seven days until you have full contraceptive cover... if you started your pills on day 1 of your period you would have full contraceptive cover straight away.
If you start your pill before your period is due you are likely to have breakthrough bleeding.
Hope this helps.
