On HRT - patch, forgot to take progesterone x 1 week

I have been on HRT using Climara patch plus daily medroxyprogesterone. I was traveling out of the country & forgot to take the progesterone tabs for 4-5 days, was still wearing the patch. How will this effect me? Is there a way to make up for it or should I just take the patch off for a week to balance things out? I was told that unopposed estrogen would cause an increase risk in uterine cancer but don't know if this includes this sort of time.
