some pills may vary in the time they take to become effective but with mine- Dianette you are protected after 7 days (also if u are ill or take anti biotics then you have to use another form of contraception for 7 days until u are protected again). i phone up the nurse who reassured me about the '7 days'. i suggest for ur different brand of pill, u do the same

Usually about one month after starting to take the pill.
Good luck
