Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
If you missed your pill on 14th then chances of pregnancy by the intercourse on 13th are less as you would not have ovulated at that time. However the intercourse on 19th and 20th without a condom can result in pregnancy if you have a 30 day cycle, though chances are slim.
However if you have a 28 day cycle then the next due date would be 30th of Jan. Counting back 14 days, you would have ovulated around 17th. Then also there is a chance you could be pregnant, again a slim one.
Go as per the advice of your PCP. Continue using condoms until your next due date and watch and see if you are pregnant. There is nothing you can do at present. If you do not want the pregnancy if there is one, then the decision can be taken then. Hope this helps. Take care!
