Is two tablets Microgynon a day can prevent pregnancy?


Q: Is eating microgynon 2 tablets a day can prevent me from pregnancy? If not, What can i do to prevent the fertilization?
I'm not sure wether i'm pregnant or not until i can get result from the pregnancy test pack that only works 7 days after the sex.

Symptoms:  I'm a 19 years old woman. Me and my boyfriend just had unsafe sex two days ago. I thought that he used condom but then he told me recently if he didn't wear any. He said he pulled out his 'thing' just before 'the liquid' came out. But i'm still not sure. I don't want to be pregnant. We're not married. I'm panic and confused.
I just ate microgynon two tablets today (each tablet containing 0.15 mg levonogestrel and 0.03 ethinylestradiol) at 8 pm. I thought that it can prevent me from getting pregnant. Today is my third weeks after the last menstruation.
