Forgot to take last two pills on Diane pack


Q: Today is Thursday and I remembered not taking the Diane 35 pill last night. When I checked, I only have one pill left and its a pill supposedly for Tuesday. Now I am not sure if I took the supposedly Wed pill last Tue or I forgot to take the Tuesday pill and lost my Wed pill. I immediately took the last pill I have but I am now bothered that there is a chance that I will be pregnant. The pill that I took this morning is already the last pill on my pack. I had sexual intercourse with my partner 4 days ago. What should I do now? Today should be the start of my 7 day tablet free week.
