If you have missed that many pills, do not have unprotected sex. After taking your next pill wait at least 7 days before having sex unprotected.

I am on Kariva and I've missed a week with UN protected sex could i be pregnant?

Yes you could become pregnant as you have missed 7 days worth of birth control. Because of this I would recommend you perform a pregnancy test in 2-3 weeks time and continue taking your birth control. Avoid having unprotected intercourse until you have continuously taken birth control for 4 weeks without missing any pills. Also use condoms.
