Pill confusion!


I am new to the Pill (Yasmin) and am a bit worried if i am taking it correctly.
I started the pill last month on the first day of my period, but my cycle only lasted 23 days instead of 28. Therefor, i had 5 pills left over in my pack. But on the first day the second period, i started the new pack (meaning the other 5 pills are wasted) Is this correct? or am i supposed to finish a whole pack, whether or not i start my period even when the pill pack isn' t finished?

thanks so much for your help.

You finish the whole pack, whether or not you start your period while still on the same pack.

You need to start on the silver one and work your way around to the last one.
