Skipped 3 days in a row on birth control and didn't bleed?

I missed 3 days in a row on my birth control and 2 of those days I had unprotected sex & he came in me. The 3rd day that I skipped it I felt cramps and all the things you would feel when your about to start your period but I didn't bleed. I went home to take the 3 pills I missed and now the next morning I felt very nauseas, does that mean I'm pregnant?

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
First of all, never double or triple up on the pills you missed. Simply start where you left off, taking only one pill. For example if you miss Monday and Tuesday, take Monday's pill on Wednesday when you remember. You feel nauseous because you took 3 pills at once and that is a very high hormonal dosage.
At this point, you probably will have some kind of period since you started taking to pills again. If you do not get your next period, you can take a pregnancy test.

Thank you! Luckly I started bleeding a little. So I know I'm not pregnant.
