Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

It all depends on which 2 pills you did not take. If you did not take any two inactive pills, then you should not worry. However if you missed the inactive pills especially from Day 8 to Day 16 of cycle, then yes, there is a chance you could be pregnant. If your periods have not come as usual, then take a pregnancy test and see. Blood HCG estimation would be more reliable than urine pregnancy test. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
