Switched birth control

Patient

Q: I was on the ring and just recently switched back to the pill. I started the new pack on the 1st day of my period which only lasted like 3 days. My doctor told me I shouldn't have unprotected sex until 7 days of the pill, I completely forgot about that and had sex with my boyfriend and it had only been 4 or 5 days. On top of that I forgot to take my pill that night and didn't take it until later the next day, and then I took the pill the day after that kind of late as well. I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I wanna see if anyone else has a dif opinion...how high are my chances of being prego?
