Missed 2 days of birth control then had period

I started my pack of birth control, othro-novum 7/7/7 (I'm a Sunday starter) and on the second week I forgot to take the 2 birth control pills for those last two days and never made them up. After that was my placebo pill week and I got my period on the fourth day as it was supposed to come, so nothing unexpected. I had my period for three days and thought it was over so I had unprotected sex and he finished in me but I checked later that day and I still had my period.. I had it for the next two days and then on the last day of the placebo pill week is when it finally finished. Could I be pregnant even though I technically had sex on my period and was still bleeding? And would me not taking those two hormonal pills cause me to be not protected and so could I be pregnant?
