Should I take plan b?

Patient : I am on birth control, been on it for years. Last month I lost two pills and my period came early. When it started I stopped the pack, waited for it to end, and started my second pack immediately. Next I was late taking the pill by about 6 hours twice within the first week (I was starting at 4pm and after four days I switched to 9pm) Ever since that first 5 days, I have been taking the pill on time at 9pm and have 5 active pills left in my pack. I had unprotected sex at this time, do I need to use plan b?
