2 missed pills

Hello. I take Balziva which is the generic version of Ovcon/Femcon. The other day in the late morning/early afternoon I realized I had missed my last 2 pills so I took both right away. Later that day I took my next pill at my regular time, 10pm, and have been taking them regularly since. The 2 pills I missed were the last 2 of my 2nd week so the day I took the 3 pills was the first day of week 3. Do you think I'm back on track or should I have thrown out the rest of the pack and started a new one? Also I know I should probably use a backup method for at least a week but after that week is over my 4th week pretty much starts which is all inactive reminder pills so I don't know if I should use a backup until after I start my next pack.

If I remember right from the package insert on most pills, there are directions for missing pills.

Ah, thank you. The directions said that if I missed the pills during week 2 I could do what I did but if I missed them during week 3 I had to start a new pack. So since it happened right between those weeks I wasn't sure which one to do.
