... However, I put it on a thursday is that fine as long as I change it the following week on thursday? Also, on the no patch week I'd have to wait till the following week to put on a patch or do I put it on immediately when I get off my period?
I love how people ignore directions. Its ok, you have to have thursday as your change day. If you aren't starting it around your period you may be fighting against your cycle at first. For the no patch week, you wait a week, that is 7 days. So you take it off on thursday and put it back the next thursday. After you've started birth control, your period has absolutely nothing to do with how you use it. So you would use it for 3 weeks and off a week. No matter what.
