In brief: No Sunday start

By starting a new pack of pills mid cycle, you may affect he length of your cycle.
A longer cycle could mean a heavier menstrual flow.

In brief: Unlikely

Common protocols discuss starting a new pack in mid-cycle to address previously missed pills.
Sometimes new start patients want to start the pill the same day that they receive an rx. Either way, abnormal bleeding might occur. Nonetheless, other than being off on the pill/cycle numbers, their is little downside to this.
