will i still spot on seasonale if im pregnant?

I have been on Seasonale for almost 4 months now. Last week, my boyfriend and i started to have condomless sex. He pulled out right away, bc we both decided it was a bad idea, so he did not cum inside of me. I've never missed a pill and take them at the same time everyday. Ive also continued to have bleed throughs everyday, which i know is common on seasonale. What are the chances of me getting pregnant from this one incident? and also, would i continue to have daily bleed throughs if i was pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you were regular with your birth control pills and did not miss the pills, then chances for getting pregnant are almost nil. Most birth control pills start being effective after you get your periods while being on pill pack.
If you are unsure about regularity of your pill use, then take emergency contraceptive again. Use alternate contraception (condoms/spermicide) while having intercourse for added protection from next time.
The breakthrough bleeding as you said is a common side effect. It should not be bothersome. If it increases or continues to last for more days than usual, then do not ignore it, visit your gynecologist to get a thorough examination and investigations to see what went wrong.
Take care.
