... change anything? Are they different doses? Could I become pregnant?
If you are on a pack that last three weeks, then you take nothing for a week, and have a let down bleed. Then all the pills are the same so it doesn't matter the order you take them.
If you are on the four week set, the last week of pills, that are usually a different colour from the rest, are placebos, and are just there so you stay in the habit of taking your pill every day at the same time.
If you mix these around it could result in a pregnancy. That being said, if you want to change the dates of your period? It can be done by skipping the placebo pills and starting a new pack right away until it's the date you want your period to start, and have your off week then. There is no medical reason to have a bleed every month when you are on the pill, so you can start a new pack right after finishing the old one and not have a bleed for another three week. Yay, six weeks no period!
