Could I be pregnant?

I missed 3 or 4 pills in a row and had sex several times over those days. I don't know how I missed them, just forgot I guess. I'm usually really good. I had a small bleed a few days after going back on the pill and then another small one at the end of my pack of pills. I am now feeling sick some mornings and having the odd dizzy spell. Yesterday I ate ham and I'm a vegetarian (I've not been able to stomach eating meat for at least 10 years) I'm also feeling really tired all the time, I keep falling asleep really early in the evenings and it feels like I'm urinating a lot more often than usual. (But this could be in my head as I'm thinking I might be pregnant) What is the likelihood of becoming pregnant after missed pills and a couple of bleeds? Is it worth me getting a home pregnancy test kit?

Your "couple of bleeds" may have been a result of your missed pills ("withdrawal bleeding", due to your body going through a type of "withdrawal" from the absence of hormones).

I am not clear on how long ago you missed pills and had unprotected sex. If you were expecting your period, and you have not had your regular menstrual "period", it would be a good idea to take a home pregnancy test (under $20) to rule out pregnancy.
