getting pregnant while on the pill??

I am in my second month of Tri-Sprintec and I have missed like 3 pills. I have had unprotected sex like 4 times this month. I have had very tender breasts and sharp pains around my uterus(which was the only sign of pregnancy I had with my son). Could I be pregnant. I still have a week of the real pills, so if i bought a test would i get the right results?? Also I have had a lot of discharge and some light spotting that happened for a day.

ive been told that if its been 2 weeks since you last had sex you can go ahead and test..yes missing 3 pills is going to greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant..but for now you'll just have to wait it out, the pills you have left should not effect your hpt results...maybe you should consider setting an alarm on your phone just as a reminder

The spotting can be caused by missing the pills. I missed one pill once and started spotting about a week or so later and didn't quit until I got my next pack.
