i take yasmin and for the last 6 yrs i have taken it on sunday to start new pack after period.

this month i stupidly thought it was sunday when it was saturday and took my first pill at 7pm saturday.. everyday since i have been taking it at 7 but i am i day ahead of the pack.
tonight ill be taking it from sunday in week 2 when it is really only week 1 sat... is this ok?

i thought i will just get my period a day earlier this month..

but how do i go about starting on sunday for next month? just wait for the sunday and take the pill or will i lose effectiveness since it will be like I missed a day

Sounds like you moved your cycle up one day. That's totally fine. You'll just want to consider yourself a Saturday start from now on, and start your new packs on Saturdays.

If you were to start on a Sunday again, you'd essentially be missing the first pill of the pack, so that's not such a great idea. I'd just stick with Saturday.
