Details matter: Always know how to use any pills BEFORE using them. Zinnia P appears to be a combination hormone pill. For daily use, it is safest to assume full protection starts after a few weeks on the first pack (one's own doctor can give individual advice). If trying to use it as Emergency Contraception, ask one's doctor for "how many pills, which pills out of the pack, and when to take them."
