How soon does my Pill protect me?

Patient: I’m currently on Yasmin and forgot to take several pills last month, I went to my doctor about this and she told me I would not be protected until I finished next month’s pill packet. What I’m wondering is do I have to wait until my seven day break is over as well or just until I finish the 21 pills?
