Not high: Missing one birth control pill is not likely to affect the risk of conceiving. Missing several dose result in poor contraceptive effect.

Unsure: Did you just start using the oral contraceptive 3 weeks ago?. If so, when does that particular product say it is safe to start having sex without back up?

Low- but double up: for one dose. I suggest the simultaneous use of condoms and spermicidal foam or gel.
