I just started birth control myself and this is what my pamphlet says about how it works: You start it on the day you start your period and it says it is not effective until you have taken it for 7 days at the same time everyday. It is not an emergency contraception.

That's true, and besides it takes several months for your body to be protected by the birth control pills anyway. You're very lucky if you didn't become pregant becuase there are not nearly enough hormones in a normal birth control pill to act as an emergency contraceptive. Your ovulation schedule may have been such that you didn't release an egg though.
Remember you have to be on the pill for a while before they work, but they're golden after a few months. You can have your period then naturally stop, the day after take a pill, and that evening have sex without worry.
