Yes : There is always a chance of pregnancy whenever you take your pills around different time ,but your chance should be very minimal because you took it within 7hours of unprotected sex ,I will advise you to be careful for future reference .

Pregnancy risk? : Risk of pregnancy from what is described is minimal. The effect of a progestin only contraceptive (like the mini pill) will not be lost by an interval of only "7 hours". Take your pills as regularly as possible, as missing too many in a series, may produce ovulation, and pregnancy is of course "possible".
