Yes, you can change your start day without increasing the risk of pregnancy as long as you don't go more than seven days without an active pill. To do so, just start the next pack earlierthan scheduled, rather than later. So if you want to change your start day from Sunday to Wednesday, and you took your last active pill on Saturday, take the placebo/sugar pills for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, discard the old pack, and take the first active pill of the new pack on Wednesday.
