    Hi!
    Currently taking Yasmine and I'm about to start my 7 day break.

    I've taken all the pills in the pack but I'm wondering if I can start the next pack early (on day 4/5 of my 7 day break?)

    Yes. But it might mean your withdrawal bleed isn't normal.

    Well the break in hormones and then restarting soon after will confuse your body. It might be shorter or lighter than normal, or could stay the same, or possibly an slightly longer.
