I have been on generic for Ortho Lo (tri sprintec) for months. I have a 28 day cycle always on time a day or two into placebo week however i dont take the placebo pills. Periods usually last between 5-7 days. This cycle day 3 of my period was light flow and I had unprotected sex. Within several hours bleeding stopped completely. I am not due for a refill of BC for another week. Could I be pregnant?

The placebo week is just that, it has no therapeutic value. They are just there so that you remember to keep taking your pill without a break in the habit. It won't effect your cycle either way.

If you have taken the active tablets as instructed you will have full contraceptive cover all of the time (even during the placebo week).
