Could I be pregnant?

I have been taking the pill for a month, I had my period like normal, lighter and less painful.
This month, I started my new pack of pills, just like normal. But this time, I ended up missing two packs of pills due to having a change in starting work at different times and just simply forgetting to take the pill.
After this, I carried on taking the pill again for another day and also took one of the pills from the missed days, on this same day. I know this is dangerous, but I still followed through with it.

The day after, I then had unprotected sex, but carried on taking my pill just like normal throughout this.
The spotting from the two missed days did stop after I got back into taking the pill.
BUT what I really do need to know, so so desperately is, could I be pregnant?
Please could someone come forward with a really clear answer about this.
Thank you so much!

Thank you for your reply, It has made me realise I do just need to sit back and wait.
If I was pregnant, would the spotting have stopped because of it?

Hi concerned and worried,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. If you skipped pills and had unprotected sex, you do have a chance of pregnancy. You will have to wait until you miss a period, wait a week and then take a pregnancy test. Anytime you have sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy therefore, using condoms as well is always suggested. I know this is a scary time but you must wait until you miss a period to know for sure if you are pregnant. Please keep us posted.
