Bride to be's panic! What are the chances of me getting pregnant?

Friday: I missed a pill (I was stressed from packing and turned off my alarm right away)
Saturday: I took Friday's pill and since I was out, I didn't notice
Sunday: I missed a pill again
Monday: In the morning, I took Sat & Sun's pill then I took Mon's pill (11:30pm; my usual time)
It was during my week 2 of the pack (pills 8, 9, 10)
If it helps, I've been on the pill for a year and a half.

I was on vacation with my fiance that time and we've been having sex. We would do it raw first then he would wear a condom later so technically, he doesn't *** in me. Before we go at it again, it's a span of hours plus it would be washed away by either the shower, cold ocean water and his pee. I don't plan on getting pregnant yet with the dress and stress of the wedding.

So basically, I'm wondering these:
Did I ovulate? (I didn't really feel like I did though; it was supposed to be last thursday)
What are the chances of getting pregnant?
Is it normal to have slight breast tenderness and slight nausea cause of the pills?
If I were to throw out my pack and start a new one, is it okay that I start today (Sunday) even though my usual start day is thursday?

I also think that my UTI might have returned (I had the symptoms for a few days now) so if ever it helps

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It's normal to have these symptoms while on the pill.  But if you missed any days your chances of becoming pregnant are higher.  Especially if you didn't used any other protection.  You need to ask your doctor on how you should take your medications.
