Stacking birth control pills and missing pills

Hi VP, I've got a question about stacking birth control pills cuz I'm a little confused/anxious about my situation.  I stack my pills so that I only have a withdrawal bleed every three months.  I've read everywhere that if you take 21 active pills or more in a row you are protected for the 7 days that you are not taking the pill.  Due to a lot of craziness happening in my life I missed three pills in a row, though I've taken a whole pack and a half consecutively up until this point.  At this point I'm thinking it's probably just a good idea to have my inactive week now, but I wanted to make sure that I'm fully protected.  If anyone could clear up my confusion that would be great.  :)  Thanks!!
