On contraception since long, bleeding, had unprotected sex. Can pregnancy occur due to missed pills?

I have been on the pill for a long time now (years). During the second week of my pills I missed 4 pills and 1 pill of the third week. I am not due for my period until next week, but I am bleeding . It is not as heavy as my normal period. My boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex pretty much every day that I missed my pills. Could I be pregnant? Is this just my period starting since I missed pills?

Hi,this bleeding in all likelihood is an early period because of you missing out on your pills as long as your last period was normal.And as it occured out of turn and before it was due, it was light.However I would suggest that if you miss one pill you should take it as soon as you remember or take two the next day and continue the cycle but if you miss 2 or more pills use another form of contraception like condoms for the rest of the cycle and drop the pills till next cycle and remember that in such a case your periods would not be on time.
