I'm currently on meliane pills. I missed a pill on the 1st of November and took it 12 hours late (i took 2 pills on one day), and i took another one 6 hours late on the 11th.
I had unprotected sex on the 13th, and I got a very light period from the 21st.

What are the chances that i'm pregnant...?

Hi namiemel, 

Although birth control pills should be taken at the same time every day, the correct way to make up for a missed pill is by doubling up, like you did. So, you should still be protected even though the pills were late. The only real way of knowing whether or not you may be pregnant is by waiting until your next period comes. If it is late, take a pregnancy test.

Good luck,
