Missed pill

I take the 21day/7day break contraceptive pill religiously and have been doing so for a year and a half with the exception of last month.

I missed day 15, but took it as soon as I realised the next day and continued as usual and did not have sex prior to this.  However I missed the last pill in my packet as well (day 21) before my 7 day break for my period as I went out of town forgetting my pill packet! When I got back from my trip (day 22) I started the next packet of pills straight away skipping my period week but I took them in the evening which left an almost 72 hour gap between this pill and the last.

I had sex on days 20/21/22.

I am waiting 11 days until my next period. what do you think the chances of me being pregnant are, just to ease my mind? Obviously I will take a pregnancy test on the first day of my next period.

I'm most concerned about the almost 72 hour gap having taken no pill. Is it worse to skip a pill at the end of packet? Surely I wasn't ovulating one day before my period week?

Any advice at all is appreciated
