Missed 2 pills in 3rd week on Trisprintec

Hello, thanks in advance for any answers and support!

I have been on Trisprintec for over a year. I am on my 3rd active week of Trisprintec, and realized this morning I missed Tuesday and Wednesday's pills (it is now Thursday). I quickly took 2 pills as soon as I remembered, which is around the same time as I always take them. I was assuming tomorrow I will also take 2 pills and then be back on track.

When I read the information for Trisprintec, it says to just take one pill until Sunday, start a new pack and not take the sugar pills. What do I do now that I've already doubled up on the pills? I also am experiencing some bleeding this morning - it's early for my "period", I'm assuming this is because I missed pills?

My husband and I had sex last night, BEFORE I REALIZED I MISSED THE PILLS! ACK! I am not going to take any sort of emergency contraception, but how likely is it that I could get pregnant? How long should I use a back up method? What should I do about the rest of the pack? I'm not sure what I should be doing at this point. Should I take a pregnancy test soon to see if I did indeed get pregnant? All of this is hopefully just a scare, because I have PCOS and it took fertility drugs for me to get pregnant with both of my children, but it's not impossible.

Please help! Thank you!
