I just started taking Yasmin (21 days) three days ago. (the pills are all yellow in color) On day two, I accidently took the last pill day three, i realized i took the wrong one and just took day two's pill. I realized that might have been a mistake and am wondering if anyone knows how to correct my taking the pills out of order. Also, do i have to wait a week before having unprotected sex?
What do I do if took Yasmin pills out of order? How do I get back on track?

Sorry for not being clear and incoherent.
I have been on the pill for three days now and, even with the mix up, I have taken one pill a day. On day two, I took a pill labeled for a different day. I realized the mix-up the next day (day 3) during the time i was going to take that day's pill. Hoping to correct it, I took the pill that was designated for day 2.
I hope that clarifies my situation.
Yes you have to wait a week. The pills are all the same, so its hardly a problem. The only thing is that you wouldn't have the days to be sure you took it. Any way you can figure out to get it back on track will work since they're all alike. I can't follow what you said you did, I get so confused when you girls do this. It doesn't make any sense to me how you can make the mistake.
Did I follow that right and you took two pills in one day because you took a pill out of order-it was day two but you took day 3's pill then realized what you did and took day two all in the same day? All the pills are the same if it is a 21 day pack. If you took two pill in one day then you need to not take one the next day and then you will have to use back up for the next seven consecutive days in case this caused you to ovulate. If I got that wrong, please explain better and I will tell you what to do.
