Hi Anon

Thanks for your question! 

On many kinds of Pill (especially the ones you take on the last day of your period) you are protected from day one. For Sunday starters or for people who start anytime of the month,  you are not protected for up to a week. 

Check which one you are on and call your pharmacy to make sure. 

Has this helped?
