Missed contraceptive pill day after having unprotected sex in the evening


Q: 've been on the pill (Loestin 20) for four weeks and four days. I started my second pack 11 days ago. I take the pill roughly at 20 to 1 in the afternoon each day. I had unprotected sex, and my boyfriend came inside. (on a Thursday) I then missed my pill the next day (on Friday) and was a couple hours slightly late taking my pill on the Saturday with the missed pill from Friday as well. This was almost a week ago. Could I be pregnant. I have never missed a pill till then. I know that missing one pill and doubling up when you remember the next day does not require emergence y contraception so I did not seek an emergency contraception. Could I be pregnant?

Symptoms:  Any symptoms I could relate to maybe pregnancy are enlarged breasts but i know that the pill i am taking have already made them bigger, but they have become even larger. I did gain some weight but i think it was due to a change in diet, I returned to normal diet and have lost all the weight so I don't think that could be a sign of pregnancy
