Reclipsen effectiveness

I think I really messed up my birthcontrol. I started my period on a saturday, started a brand new pack after being off for a few months the following tuesday. So ten days after I started my period i started the pack. I took two pills right away then have been consistant ever since. It has now been 3 wks. Is it effective?

Usually, birth control pills should be started the day of the start of your period or the Sunday after your period starts.  Since you have been taking them for 3 weeks, they should be effective, but I would also ask your ob/gyn since you began them on an odd day.
