Missed pills

Patient: I am using a 28 birth control method and have been for some months now. In the second week of active pills, I missed the last three pills. I took the rest of the pack as planned. I am now in the second week of active pills in the next pack, and had unprotected sex. Am I at a higher risk for pregnancy?
