Not overlapping new pill

Patient: I recently swapped contraceptive pills (cilest to ovoplex) as I moved abroad where they no longer sell cilest. As there were some problems in finding an appropriate pill, I wasn’t able to overlap them so just took the new pill as normal after my 7 day break. Are there any problems with this? I used condoms during intercourse for the first month on the new pill, should we be ok not to use them now?
