You only start taking the pills on the first day of your period when you are starting out. From then on you just take one pill per day and your period will come when it needs to. I always started my first "sugar pill" on Thursday morning and didn't see my period until Saturday some time. As long as you are taking one pill per day you will not need to take addition protection. Extra protection is only needed if you miss a pill.
