Yes you could get pregnant. The bleeding you had was most likely not the usual period you would have but break thru bleeding from withdrawal of the hormones, since you forgot it. You were only on it for 5 days again, which isn't enough time to protect you. Pulling out is NOT a form of birth control. He deposits sperm long before he ejaculates. Just keep on taking the pill, but use a condom for this cycle. When its time to start the next pack, you should be safe. You cannot forget your pill like that and expect it to work. Set a reminder on your phone, to take it the same time each day. And take it.

There is a big chance to get pregnant. You already knew you missed pills, why didnt you insist he use back up or say no, I cant have sex right now-I missed some pills? There is not a whole lot you can do right now. You could try Plan b but it may cause you more grief because it will make you irregular for months and you can expect it to cause symptoms similar to pregnancy and this can cause major anxiety and grief. I personally hate Plan b but it can be effective in some cases. You can also just keep your fingers crossed and hope you dodged a bullet and keep taking your pills but use back up until you have been on them at least seven days straight. You may have a late period or no period this month because your body thought you were going through your withdrawal week and already bled so you may have to hold your breath until next month. If you do miss your period this next period week, you can take a test to see if you are pregnant.
A man withdrawing before ejaculation does exactly NOTHING to prevent pregnancy. It is a wasted gesture. It may reduce the amount of sperm present but there is sperm leakage all through the sex act and the male cannot control this leakage because he is not aware when it occurs. All it takes is one sperm to do the job! If you dont want to be pregnant, your number one responsibilty to your body is to take your contraceptives regularly. If you want to be adult enough to be sexually active then you need to be adult enough to take responsibilty. I truly hope that you dont wind up pregnant. If you manage to get by remember this fear and learn a lesson from it!
