So I'll be quick and fast in this question, I was on my second day of my placebos in my pack of birth control pills. And I'm a cautious person so I have protected sex every time so during my second placebo day I had sex but on the first day I didn't bleed at all but strangely after I had sex I bled does that mean I have no chance in being pregnant? And also is it true that even during the placebo week you are still protected?

Yes, if you get a withdrawal bleed that means you're not pregnant.

It's also true that your birth control pill still gives you contraceptive protection during the inactive pill week. This article explains how.

How do birth control pills really work, even during the placebo period?

Also, if you're using both birth control pills and condoms effectively, you can be sure that your chances of pregnancy are very low. Take a look here for information on the effectiveness of combining birth control methods.
