Taking birth control pill yasmin, missed pills, minor stomach cramps, unprotected sex. Chances of pregnancy?

Hi, I m on the birth control pill yasmin and 1 week ago i realised over new years that i had missed 3 pills to took them all at once, these were in the last week of my 23pill pack but now.. 8 days on i have had some minor cramps but no bleeding . I have only had sex once in this time, should i be worried about risk of pregnancy? And should i only start my next packet of pills once my bleed has begun? Thanks

Missing three pills does put you at risk of pregnancy.
You should now definitely wait for your period, and if it is delayed, get yourself checked by a gynecologist first.
Yes, you should start the new pack once your next period starts.
Take care.
