Alright, so currently my girlfriend is on birth control, and she has been for over a year.
She just started a new pack this past Sunday, and has been taking it with perfect use so far the past 5 days.
The pack before, she might have missed a couple pills during the first 2 weeks, but we didn't have sex during this time and she took them the next day when she remembered. She did miss one of the last active pills in the pack also (I'm thinking the 19th or 20th pill).
We just had sex earlier today, and I did ejaculate inside her.
My question is if there is any significant pregnancy risk? She's assuring me everything's ok, and I am a bit of a worry wart. I just wanted to get some clarification here.

So long as she began her current pack on time--that is, no break between packs--the effectiveness isn't compromised. How she took her pills during the last cycle only affect her level of protection for that cycle.
For almost everything you might ever want to know about missed or late pills, you can refer to this article:
