[QUOTE=caligirl866]I've been on Tri-Sprintec for 4 years. Recently I missed 5 pills and started bleeding (lightly). I had sex for all those 5 days with my boyfriend. Could I be pregnant, even though I have been on the pill for 4 years?[/QUOTE]

Absolutely. It doesn't matter how long you've been on the pill. What matters is your consistency in taking the pill.

Just to clarify, did you miss 5 pills in a row, or 5 throughout the month?

While most drug companies say that missing 1 pill is ok, missing 2 pills or more in a row means that you must use a back-up method of birth control or abstain for at least 7 days. If you just missed 5 pills at different times, pregnancy is still possible, but less likely.
