Missed pill, unprotected sex, pregnant??

I was on my sugar pills for 7days from 18th to 24th.
I had 4 active pills over the next 4 days at the same time. (25th - 28th)
28th I had surgery under a GA
29th - I skipped my pill due to the grogginess of my surgery the day before.
30th - I doubled up my pill but took it in the afternoon I usually take it in the morning.
31st - 6th I took a pill a day at the usual time.
6th I had sex and he ejaculated inside
7th I took my pill also and also had sex and he ejaculated inside.

8th - 14th I took a pill a day at the usual time.
On the 13th I had sex and he ejaculated inside.
I think I was protected from pregnancy prior to this time.
The 14th was the last active pill and I am skipping the sugar pills and going straight to the new pack of active pills
The 15th and 16th I didn't take a pill at all as I left my new pack at work.
On the 16th I had sex and he ejaculated inside
On the 17th when I got to work I took 2 pills
On the 17th I had sex and he ejaculated inside
18th I took my pill 12hrs later (at night and not in their morning like I usually do)
19th I didn't take my pill
19th I had sex and he ejaculated inside
20th I took 2 pills

Just wondering when would be a good time to test. I'm not saying that I am pregnant but I think I am covered enough by my pill that I am not concerned but concerned enough to want to test.

Hello Anonymous,

Levels of hCG, which is the hormone produced only during pregnancy, can be detected in urine about 12 to 14 days following conception, and in blood about 11 days following conception. It can take six to 12 days for a fertilized egg to implant. Once it has implanted, hCG will be produced.

Since you have made up for missed doses, I think you should have been protected against becoming pregnant.

I see two options. Finish this pack and take the inactive pills so that you have bleeding. If you do not have vaginal bleeding, take a pregnancy test. Or, test four weeks from August 19. Testing then would certainly show whether or not you conceived on any of those days.
