Having decided to go back on the pill-I have some packs left from when I used to be on it..can I start taking it at any point during my cycle or does it have to be on the first day of my period. I seem to remember that it takes 7 days to be effective if you start mid cycle but I could be wrong and it won't be at all effctive-which I dont want!!
Anyone know for def?

You are best to wait for day one of your period - it will be effective from then on also you will know that you are not pregnant. You can start it later but will have to use condoms as well for the first 7 days and you may be more likely to have spotting.
