Hello Sass

While being on the pill that long lowers your risk a bit, any time you have unprotected sex, you risk pregnancy. Two weeks of unprotected sex is a lot, and I think you are probably aware it is entirely possible to become pregnant this way.

It probably isn't worth taking a pregnancy test until a week after you miss a period. Keep in mind also that you will need to use a backup method of contraception for a month while you get back on track with your pills.

Good luck.
