Can i be pregnant?

I missed my last two active pills in my pack and then got my period a few days later. My period ended on March 21st and I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend the 21st, the 22nd, and the 23rd. I haven't missed any pills since the last two pills before my period, but my lower back is sore and I don't know if I'm just paranoid or if I could actually be pregnant.I know this is super early in my cycle to get pregnant but is there a chance? I'm so scared I'm only 19.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Missing pills can reduce their effectiveness. However, it is very unlikely that you ovulated during the time you had intercourse because you got your period a few days later. This makes pregnancy practically impossible.
If you miss your next period, take a pregnancy test.
