Chances of pregnancy when messed up on the pill

So I took all of my pills but 6/3, 6/4 I missed 2 pills (combination) and took them Friday. I honestly cannot remember if we had unprotected sex the days leading up, I want to say no? Anyways, I was ready to wait a week before unprotected sex since I missed 2 pills. Well, I JUST found out that I should’ve started a new pack once I got to placebo instead of going through that week. Oops. I got my period placebo week and everything has been fine and I am 2 days in on my new pack. We just had unprotected sex last night. Now I feel like an idiot because I wasn’t protected since I have had 7 days off the pill for placebo week. Anyways, my question is, could I get pregnant? I’m not sure if I would’ve ovulated so far after stopping the pill, plus I just got my period. So unless it was last night and I WAS ovulating I should be fine, right?

You should still be protected even after you've taken the routine 7 days off.  That's built into the schedule.  Some specific pills are a little more "forgiving" if you miss a dose or two,  and some are not,  but if  you take your pill faithfully all 21 days,  going off for the placebo pills shouldn't make you at risk for pregnancy.
