Accidentally skipped birth control

I've been on the patch for a few years. I was at the end of week 2 and stupidly, I thought I was at the end of week 3, took it off for my patch free week. I got my period and then realized I had an extra patch which was my week 3 patch. I put it on right away and got my next box of patches. I waited the week and put a new one on. My problem is, I'm a little worried now. Am I ok since I got my period and then put another patch on or am I at risk still ?
