Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to wait and see if you have your normal period--if so, you are probably OK.  If not, better check.  If you are still within the 72 hour timeframe, you may want to consider emergency contraception such as Plan B.
It is important to take all of the pills as directed, but the first ones in the pack are the MOST important.
Good luck!
