Good evening, thanks for the question.
Actually the birth control pill is an effective contraceptive method if consumed correctly and regularly every day. Delay in taking birth control pills risks reducing the effectiveness of contraception even if only for a few hours, because hormone levels will start to decline. So even in your case, the risk of pregnancy still exists, especially if during intercourse do not use additional contraceptives such as condoms.
For now, it's best to use a condom if you are having sex until the birth control pill package runs out. If you have used up the pill package but you haven't gotten your period yet, you should do a test pack first.
In the future you should be more obedient to take birth control pills according to the rules, and you should also prepare emergency contraception pills to prevent unwanted pregnancies that can be taken immediately after intercourse besides regular birth control continues.

That's all, hope you can help
