Hello and thank you for using EmpowHer,
Anytime you miss pills you increase your chances of getting pregnant. However there is no way of knowing if you actually conceived. You should never double up on the pills. It imbalances your hormones and disrupts your cycle.
Since you hadn't started the next pack yet, you should have simply started with the first pill. For now continue taking one pill a day as usual. Your period may be irregular from doubling up, but it doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy. If you miss your period entirely however, you can take a pregnancy test a week later.
