You will not be protected against pregnancy and your period may arrive late. You need to use a condom for 2 weeks.

When should you start the birth control pill if your period ends before Sunday?

You can start the birth control pill at any time in your cycle. If you are set on starting on a Sunday, then you'll need to use a back up method of birth control for a week, unless it's been five days or fewer since you started your period. Traditionally, women in the US started the birth control pill on Sunday. This has an obvious disadvantage - your health care provider's office is closed on Sunday, and many women start their pill late when they notice too late that they're out of pills. Do yourself a favor and consider starting on a weekday, as they do in most other countries.

If your taking birth control and didn't start your period when you was supposed to what does that mean?

You don't have to start the very first day your birth control says you start your period. I usually start late monday, monday nights or tuesday. But if you havn't the whole week, you could be pregnant, or there maybe something wrong with the pills, so go see your doctor, or a teen clinic.
