Switching from COC to another COC birth control

Hi! Ok, so I was on Beyaz from a year then switched to Microgestin 1.5 because it was cheaper. I started Microgestin as soon as I was finished with my placebo pill from the previous pack. I took the microgestin for 4 days before I had sex without a condom. I didn't know if there is a chance that I could be pregnant? I thought that maybe I couldn't because I didn't skip any days and switched from one COC to another. I am getting pretty anxious about this so if you could help me out that would be great. Thank you!!

There was no break in your schedule of taking birth control; you simply switched brands. Thus, you remained protected against unwanted pregnancy.
