Brief Answer:
Do not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
I pill is known to cause withdrawal bleeding after5-7 days of its intake.
Moreover, chances of pregnancy by an intercourse 2-3 days before the expected periods is almost nil.
I suggest you both to not to worry and wait for a week for the periods to come.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
