Hi Marrie

It's a combination pill, not the mini pill. 

Read and follow the instructions carefully.

Thank you. One more thing when I start it which will be next week would I still be protected from the current pack or do I have to use a backup method since is a different pill?

Hi again

As long as your current pack is also a combination, you will be fine and protected straight away.  Don't forget to ask you doctor about these things when you are talking to him/her. He/she is your best reference.  The pharmacy is also an excellent resource.
