Recently switched from one contraceptive pill to another and fearing pregnancy!

I was on Yaz pill for 6 years and for personal reasons I had to switch to another pill (Ovranette) with a higher dose. I switched to this pill nearly 2 weeks ago now and I was away for reasons I could not control for 3 days and I missed my new pill for 3 days in a row, pills 9, 10, and 11. I had unprotected intercourse after missing 2 pills as I did not realise at this stage that I had missed pills, now I don't know what I should do!
Should I be worried? Could I be pregnant? Does the pill work immediately after switching from another brand, as along with only starting this new pill I missed 3 in a row near the start in the first month?!
