missed the last two pills in the third week and started pack late

I missed two pills in my third week and didn't double up, I then started my new pack late by two days because of insurance issues. The pharmacist told me just to start the pack that day and no need to double up. I had unprotected sex right twice before 7 consecutive days of pills. Chance of pregnancy?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Since you did not take the pill consistently, their effectiveness decreases. However, it is impossible to say whether or not you will become pregnant. I suggest you keep taking the pills as usual. If you miss a pill, do not double up, simply start up where you left off soon as you remember.
If you miss your next period, take a pregnancy test.
