missed pill yasmin

Forgot to take pill on third day of new packet I then took two together on fourth day. I had unprotected sex on third day but there was no ejaculation. I think my next fertile window begins tomorrow. What precautions should I take to reduce risk of pregnancy? Could there a chance of pregnancy now?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would be certain that I understand you correctly--you missed only one pill and made that up immediately the next day.  On the day of the missed pill you had intercourse, but he did not ejaculate.
If this is correct, I would advise you that your pills should prevent pregnancy if you don't miss any more during this pack.  You may wish to use a back up method such as a condom for the remainder of the pack, which would not be harmful.  If you are extremely nervous, you could consider adding "the morning after pill", but I don't think that is necessary either.
Hope this helps!
