Yes, you should start it on the first day of your period, regardless of what day of the week that is and regardless of any days that may be printed on the packaging.

And yes again, you should then continue taking a tablet each day and make sure not to miss any.

This may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and mood swings.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

Hi, good day. I just changed my pills. I switched to Althea pills but from the time im taking it after my menstruation had stopped, I can feel that my boobs is a little bit aching just like one of the symptoms I felt when I got pregnant. Is it possible that I'm pregnant since on the 3rd pill I had intercourse?
