Skipped active pills and went straight on inactive pills!

I need some help determining whether my pills proctecting me. I hadn't had a period for over 6months as I skipped them using my pill which I know isn't good. My doctor had me go straight onto taking my inactive white sugar pills instead of the active yellow ones. I'm on the pill ESTELLE-35 ED. So I was a week off starting my white inactive pills. I was meant to take a Saturday yellow active pill but I went straight onto the Saturday white inactive pill so I basically skipped 7 active pills but I took white inactive pills instead to bring on my periods a week earlier. I'm trying to figure out whether this will effect the effectiveness of the pill? I'm I protected? Please help!

Thank you so much this really helped! The inactive pills defiantly did bring my period.
So just so I fully understand... I wasn't protected for the 7 inactive pills because I missed those 7 active pills?
No chemist has been able to answer me so thank you so so much!!!
