What is the risk of pregnancy given my circumstances?

I have been on birth control for about 2 years but lately I have had a lot of trouble taking my pills. I attribute it partly to a schedule due to a change in college courses and partly because I would like to have a baby but I am trying to hold off until I finish my degree in about 2 years. I am currently taking a birth control pill called "Junel" which is generic for "Loestrin" So here is my question. I started taking my current pack on Tuesday October 19th. I missed 3 pills in the end of the first week on Sat through Mon October 23rd-25th. On tuesday the 26th I realized what I had missed but just took the one pill designated for the the 26th. Yesterday, the 27th I took one pill also. My fiance and I do not use protection on and had sexual intercourse on the 25th and 26th. Any ideas on my chances of pregnancy this month? Thanks.
