Birth control mishap

Patient: My birth control pill has broken to pieces two days in a row. I missed the first one by 5 hours, but I took what I could of it (most of it). The second one, I took at the regular time, and took what I could of it (again, most of it). I had unprotected sex in between the two days. Should I be worried?

 

 

Symptoms: None.
