Mistake on the Pill

Im posting on behalf of my girlfriend who has no internet access.

Anyway, My girlfriend made a mistake taking her oral contraceptive. for the last 5 days she has taken the correct days from her pack, but from the wrong week. The pills she took were still "active" pills but not from the correct week. What should we do?

Please help with any advice. we are both fairly worried.

If they were all active pills, it will not make any difference.
