Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are on 21 day pill pack, you should start the next pill pack after 7 days of taking the last active pill (irrespective of which day of the week you finish with active pill intake). You should have the protection if you have been taking the pills at scheduled time daily and have not been sexually active without protection within first 2-3 weeks of getting started on the pill pack. Read the instruction leaflet carefully. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
Take care.
