I missed one pill on my second week and continued with my pack. Only, the following week I took Sundays pill, missed Monday and took Tuesdays right after we had unprotected sex.I continued as normal after.. Should I be OK? I should know soon as I should start my period in soon, but I'm concerned.

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
As you said, you period will be a big indicator or whether or not you may be pregnant.
in the future when you miss a pill do skip over it. For example if you miss Monday's pill, take it as soon as you remember or the next morning. Do not simply skip it and take the next one the next day. Of course missing a pill or taking them in the wrong order does decrease their effectiveness. But no one can tell you exactly how effective or ineffective it was unfortunately.
You will simply need to wait for your period. If it does not come at all, or it is only spotting, then take a pregnancy test.
