Hello ma'am.

In such a scenario it is absolutelyMANDATORY that you first completely rule out pregnancy with confirmatory tests before restarting on the pill.

Home pregnancy tests will have to be conducted with an early morning urine sample at least 2 weeks after your last sexual encounter. This will have to be repeated 2-3 times to get a confirmed result. Tmyou may also visit a doctor to get a serum pregnancy test for a more accurate result.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
