    Unhappy Missed Birth Control Pill - should I be nervous?

    I have been on a combination birth control for about a year or so, and lately I have been very good with taking it on time, except for this week.
    On Friday I forgot to take my pill, so I just completely skipped it and did not take two in a row the next day. On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday I continued taking my pills normally (one each day at the same time) but then on Tuesday I had unprotected sex. Tuesday night I got scared because I forgot about my missed Friday pill, so I took two on that day (after having sex). I wasn't going to get Plan B or anything, but now I am getting nervous.
    I am on my second week of my birth control package and I am pretttty sure he did not even finish (the stove alarm went off, we were making pizza - you don't need details)

    just wondering if I am worrying over nothing? or would it be recommended to buy Plan B anyways, even though it has been just over 3 days? technically I didn't miss two pills in a row... so is it really that bad?

    also, what is the percent rate of people who miss a pill getting pregnant? I know it is like 99.9% for perfect use of the pill.

    thank you!
