Thanks for posting your query.

Take missed pill as soon as possible & continue taking daily pills.

There is no need of any emergency contraceptive pills or any barrier contraception.
But you should be regular in taking oral pills because if you miss two or more than two pills, failure rate increases.

I hope your query has been answered. I shall be available for your further queries.

Thanks for writing back.

You should not be pregnant as you have missed just one pill & also have taken Emergency contraceptive pill.

As you are not having period for 4+ years you can do one thing for confirmation, continue your cerazette & get your pregnancy test done either urine or blood test after 30 days of missing your pill.

I hope your query has been answered.
