If you don’t state the day of your last confession, does it effect the confession?

I didn’t say that I’d been there yesterday.
Does this matter?

It doesn’t affect validity, but it certainly gives the confessor a better indication of your spiritual well-being. I’ve always said how long it’s been, so I don’t know firsthand, but I’d imagine a good confessor would ask how long it’s been if the penitent didn’t volunteer that information first. In the future, always say how long it’s been. If you chose not to say it because it has only been a day, I’m not sure that affects the validity of the sacrament, but I definitely would encourage you to avoid letting shame hold you back from saying it.
