Hi I am just concern about my birth control pills failing on me. I recently switched my birth control pills from camerse lo tab to a normal dosage of tri sprintec (generic version of ortho tri cycline). I started taking the pills on Sunday after I started my period but i was only 3 days into my period (started on Friday morning) so I was still on my period when I started my new birth control. 11days into being on tri sprintec I took my pill 7-8 hours later than normal. And then the next day 14th day on my new pill i took my pill at normal time but had sex. I was just wondering if me being late to taking a pill (but not missing it) could have caused my birth control to fail? Also I was reading online ways to take a normal birth control as plan B and I did so. Which is taking 4 active pills and taking another 4 active pills 12 hours later. I took the first 4 the that night I had sex ( the day after I had been late on a pill but was already back on track with my pill). I have taken all my pills since then on time or a little early. So I was wondering if I should be worried still or not. I know this is a very long read and I am sorry I just am being worried person!
My doctor told me I was protected, but am I?

Sorry I also forgot to add I called my Gyno and asked if I should be concerned (I didn't mention taking the extra birth control pills I had as plan B). And she said I was protected and fine since I didn't even miss a pill and made up the pill.

I also read on my packaging for my pills that no backup birthcontrol is needed if you miss one pill, which I didn't even do. Sorry I just get freaked out over this, and I've been googling this topic which doesn't help me at all (I know never Google health stuff but I couldn't help myself) thank you so much to whoever responds back to me!
