Depends on the pill: Yasmin is a combination birth control pill (has 2 hormones per active pill) that comes as a 21-pill pack or 28-pill pack. The 21-pill pack has 21 identical pills, so mixing up the order of the pills makes no difference. The 28-pill pack has 21 identical active pills, so mixing up the 21 pills makes no difference; the other 7 pills are inactive, so taking one of those is like taking nothing at all.
