Chances of being pregnant?

Hi everyone, in a bit of a panic here as about a year ago I accidentally became pregnant after a split condom and failed morning after pill. I terminated the pregnancy.

I then started on birth control pills. I haven't had sex in about 7 months so I haven't been super vigilant about taking my pills properly. Anyway, on the first week of my current pack I missed Friday's pill (day 6). I didn't make up for it, I just skipped and took Saturdays like normal (I now know better that I should have taken it!) I then took Thursdays pill around 12 hours late (Friday morning) and again didn't take Fridays at that time. Didn't take a pill Saturday morning. Basically, I missed a pill on Day 6, took 6 pills in between, then missed a pill on Day 13.

That night I ended up having unprotected sex. About 11 hours later I took Levonelle (morning after pill) and then took two of my regular pills to catch-up, then on Monday took two so I'm totally caught up. I still couldn't stop worrying so I got the copper-IUD inserted as well yesterday, 3 days after the sex.

Anyway, my doctors think I'm crazy but I'm still so worried because of my previous experience. In addition, before my IUD insertion I got a pregnancy test done, which showed a weird shading on the pregnancy line part. The doctor told me it was impossible I was pregnant so soon, and took another one which was negative. Still, I panic.

Obviously nobody can give me a sure answer, but has anyone been in a similar situation?
