I started the pills on a Sunday, but not around my period. Will this effect anything and when will it take effect?
Yes its ok. You will be working against your cycle so you may get bleeding when your period would have been due, even tho you're not on the inactive pills. This will straighten out fairly rapidly. It takes effect right away but you have to wait 7 days for unprotected sex because of the chance you may have ovulated before you started it.
