Birth control

I have a question regarding 'forgetting' the pill.

I am on the Diane35 for almost teo months now. I take the pill 3 weeks and take a one week break where I get my period within a couple of days.

During my third week. On day 17 I forgot my pill but made it up the next day right before dinner and also took my regular 18th pill. I have had unprotected sex on day 19 and forgot to take my pill. I had unprotected sex again on day 20 and realised I forgot my pill the day before and took day 19&20 at the same time. Today it is day 21 (my last pill from this pack) and I am taking it normally. Should I stop like normal and start a 7 day break? Should I use a plan B pill? Or I have read I should continue straight onto another pack without having a break.

Thank you for your answer!!
