Where's my period?

Last week, I abruptly stopped taking my birth control pill (Aviane) four days before I was supposed to start my placebo pack. When will my period start?
I usually use another HBC, but the pharmacy switched me to Aviane, which made me nauseous and irritable. The side-effects made me procrastinate taking it, and eventually I kept doubling up and/or missing too many pills. Last Saturday, I realized that I had 4 pills in the pack left. So I decided to stop taking them, let my period come, and then start over fresh with a new pack of my old BC.
My period hasn't come yet and, to complicate things even further, I had (protected) sex last week while I was not on BC.
Should I just start another pack of BC (usually I wait until after my period to avoid spotting)? Should I take a pregnancy test? When would it be accurate? How royally fucked over are my hormone levels right now?
