I was on Microgynon from Dec 3rd onwards (1st day of my period) and took the pill everyday as directed.On the 3rd of jan(I was on my 2nd pack of pills) I had sex with my boyfriend,we used a condoms and later checked the condom for damage of any kind to be sure.
Since the 3rd of Jan I did not engage in any sexual activity and after my withdrawal bleed on the 2nd pack of pills (on 24th Jan),I stopped the pill as I was given a 2 month dosage. Its silly to even ask but just to put my mind at ease as Scarleteen always has,do I run any sort of pregnancy risk?
I have taken both the packs as directed,at the same time everyday without a late/missed pill.

No, your effectiveness from the pill hasn't been compromised (still over 99%), as the last time you had the kind of sex that presents a risk was way before you stopped taking the pill. However, obviously you know need more pills and to wait for a whole pack until you use the pills as your sole form of birth control. Alternatively, you can look into getting another form of contraception.
