Welcome to ehealthforum.
The hormonal cycle can get disrupted if you start your pills late and may not give you the necessary protection against pregnancy. You should have considered using additional protection while having intercourse during this pack of pills since you started late on them. There is possibility of pregnancy. Get a thorough check done by your gynecologist along with blood tests to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Do not start your next pack of pills until you are declared ‘not pregnant’ after the tests (blood HCG levels). Stop taking the pills if you are found to be pregnant.
Take care.
