you can start taking the pill from any time you want, but you need to use additional protection. If you read through the leaflet that comes with the Pill, everything should be explained there.
The pill *should* start working within a few days if you take it on the first day of your period, but use a condom just incase for the first week. The Pill will actually be in your system a few hours after you take it, although it won't be working immediately. Any questions you can call the NHS health help line, I'm sure it covers sexual health as well as illness etc. Good luck :)
