I missed two pills in the first week of my pack and lost them when i went to double up, so restarted my pack on tuesday(also at night, when i ususally take them around 9 am). On thursday I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend, didnt pull out. Also the next couple of days we did the same thing(unprotected sex). What are the chances that I'm pregnant, also is it to late for the Plan B pill (also I cant get the pill until monday)

You do have a higher chance of pregnancy when you miss birth control pills on consecutive days, are not able to make them up, and have unprotected sex.

No one can tell you what type of risk you have, but the more times you have unprotected sex for those 7 days you miss the pills, and the more pills you miss, the higher your chances of pregnancy.

You can take emergency contraception up to 120 hours after unprotected sex.

What are the chances that the EC would work if i were to take it around 4 days after the first time that i had unprotected sex?

You can take EC up to 5 days (120 hours) after intercourse, and the effectiveness decreases with amount of time that has lapsed since intercourse. It is about 80% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken immediately after sex.
