You will lose protection if you start the new pack a day late. If you do that, you must use a back up method for the first seven days of that new pack. A better way to switch from a Saturday to a Sunday start is to take the first placebo pill in the pack as scheduled on Saturday, then start your new pack the next day. Doing so will not affect protection. Just remember that if you're starting the new pack on Sunday, then you may not have access to your health care provider or pharmacy on your start day; if you run out of pills, you may not be able to reach anyone at the office until Monday, and will lose protection.

It all depends on the type of pill your taking. With the normal pill you can do that just don't have unprotective sex until you've taken 7 pills or whatever the advice is on the packet for if you forget a pill. If you're really concerned contact your GP or sexual health clinic

The birth control pill can make your period lighter. "A day late" is within the norm for women on or off the pill. If you're expecting that the pill will make your period always come on a Tuesday, four weeks apart, you are likely to be disappointed. For some women the pill makes the period this predictable, but they are the exception.
