Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been regular in taking the birth control pills (and if it is not your first pill pack use), and if you have followed the missed-pill-protocol, you should remain protected. If you are worried, you can consider taking emergency contraception within 24-48 hours of the unprotected sexual contact to prevent pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Be regular in taking your birth control pills at scheduled time daily. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
